Gett’n our Kix wait’n for Tix


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. 
Rockies Balloon.jpg 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.

Line 3.jpg                  Mylee pulled the best numbered wristband of the three of us #313.
Mylee 313.jpg Her wristband put us in Row 3 in the 13th spot. Actually there were only six people in front of us so we were sixth in that line.

Line 1-4.jpgThen 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.

   The little girl picked Row 3 first(sweet), so we were were one of the first six fans at the ticket window.

           Here’s the long line of folks patiently waiting for their time at the window.

Baseball’s best deal…Check out Coors Field


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.

Army Pride hat.jpgBelieve me,….I say that with pride.

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. 

 Now don’t get me wrong..Every once in a while you have to splurge and get good seats…and it’s usually possible to upgrade your seats during the game..You just need to be crafty.rockpileview.jpg

 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
