Today Colorado Rockies tickets went on sale at the ticket windows at Coors Field. This is the day when a little patience pays off big. It was a bit chilly but the forcast for today was was mid 50’s.
The way the Rockies work it is you choose a wristband that’s numbered between 101 and 499. The 100’s represent line one, 200’s line two, etc. Then the second set of numbers decides your position in line.
Then the Rockies staff placed four baseballs inside a bag numbered 1-4. A little girl was chosen from the crowd to pick out the numbered baseballs. The order in which the baseballs were picked decided which of the fours row gets to line-up in front of the ticket windows first.
We were also able to snag tickets for all of the fireworks games which are on:
And all of the Bobblehead games which are on:
April 3rd Ubaldo Jiminez
June 10th Carlos Gonzalez
August 20th Troy Tulowitzki.
Mission accomplished in less than an hour.
Most games we attend we go big and purchase Rockpile tickets.
I prefer to watch my baseball live, but I also have two kids at home ages nine and seven. So the only way I can support my family and get to see the Rockies home games live, is to Rockpile it.
For me its being there, the crowd, the atmosphere, taking pictures, the vibe, snagging a ball at batting practice, the smells, the sounds, ice cold beer, feasting on a Rockies Dog, wearing my colors, supporting my team, spending quality time with my kids, and beating the mad rush home.
You haven’t lived until you’ve watched an entire game from the Rockpile at Coors Field. (ok, that’s a stretch).
It’s really not that bad, but the sun and heat can do it’s damage.
Bring lots of water.
Four dollars for me, and a dollar each for my kids.
Three people watching a professional baseball game in person for six bucks.
Thats got to be the best deal in baseball
