All Around Denver
SEP 29, 2017 – OCT 7, 2017
Coors Field is known for it’s large outfield, rooftop party deck and the mountainous view decorating the background. But now fans are coming to celebrate its main attraction, the baseball team.
As the Colorado Rockies have stormed off to a franchise best 46-26 record, fans are filling up the seats to watch the National League West Division leaders in action and the players and coaches have noticed.
“These last few games, with the growing attendance, it’s been great,” said Rockies Manager Bud Black. “The players are talking about it. It’s wonderful.”
Nothing punctuated Black’s point more than Nolan Arenado’s 3-run walk-off homer against the San Francisco Giants on Father’s Day that sent 48,321 fans roaring through Lodo. Chants of M-V-P echoed through Coors Field to the delight of the Rockies All-Star 3rd Baseman.
“Things are getting loud here,” said Arenado. “This was the loudest I’ve heard this place. I think the fans and the people of Denver are starting to get the hint that we are for real.”
The 7-5 win completed the 4-game sweep over the Giants. It was also the second-straight sell out crowd. The Rockies have boosted their attendance to an average of 36,410, up over 4,000 from last year. This gives them the 8th best attendance in baseball.
With the division foe Arizona Diamondbacks coming to town for a 3-game series on Tuesday, the Rockies have a chance not only to boost their one-game lead in the standings, but to also claim their stake as the most coveted ticket all summer long.
