Colorado Rockies Details<
The Rockies joined Major League Baseball as an expansion team in 1993. The team has made four playoff appearances — including one trip to the World Series — over the course of its short history.
Colorado’s trip to the World Series started with a Wild Card berth that required them to win 14 of the last 15 games of the 2007 season. The Rockies kept winning in the playoffs, too. They beat the Padres in a one-game playoff, swept the Phillies in the NLDS, and then swept the Arizona Diamondbacks in the NLCS. But Colorado’s amazing run came to an end in the World Series: they lost in four games to the Boston Red Sox.
All of the Rockies’ playoff appearances have been as a Wild Card team (they have never won the National League West Division). These Wild Card trips to the playoffs include their 2017 season, but the Rockies lost a one game playoff to the Arizona Diamondbacks.
A number of Rockies’ players had strong 2017 seasons. Pitcher Greg Holland recorded 16 consecutive saves at the beginning of the season, which broke a franchise record. Third baseman Nolan Arenado hit for the cycle in a game against the Giants, including a home run that was a walk-off game winner. Arenado also won his fifth consecutive gold glove award for his work on the field. Finally, leadoff hitter Charlie Blackmon’s .331 batting average led the NL and won him the NL Batting Title; Blackmon also set a Major League record for runs batted in by a leadoff hitter.
With those roster pieces in place and coming off an impressive 97-75 record, there is no doubt that Colorado has established itself as a playoff contender for 2018.
The Rockies’ home ballpark is Coors Field, located in Denver’s lower downtown area. Because baseballs travel farther in the dry Denver air, Coors Field has a reputation for being one of the most hitter friendly parks in baseball. The Rockies store their baseballs in a gigantic humidor in order to counteract the effects of Denver’s elevation. The center field bleachers at Coors Field are known as the Rockpile. Die-hard Rockies fans have sat in the Rockpile since the franchise’s first season when they played at Mile High Stadium.
