Coors Field is the home to Major League Baseball’s Colorado Rockies. The Rockies formed as an expansion team in 1993 but had to play their first two seasons at Mile High Stadium, which they shared with the Broncos. Coors Field was completed for the 1995 season.
The naming rights to the field belong to Coors Brewing Company, which operates a brewery in Colorado that is the largest brewing facility in the world. The field is located in Denver, Colorado in lower downtown. It holds 50,398 fans.
Because of Denver’s high altitude, Coors Field developed a reputation as the most homerun-friendly park in baseball. The ball travels further when hit through the thinner air, and curveballs do not curve as much as they do in lower altitudes. The park holds the Major League record for homeruns in a season: 303 homeruns were hit at Coors Field in 1999. The Rockies have cut down on the number of homeruns by storing their baseballs in a large humidor, but Coors Field is still the most hitter-friendly park in Major League Baseball.
The 1998 MLB All-Star game was played at Coors Field (before the humidor) and is the highest scoring all-star game to date. The American League scored 13 runs and had 19 hits, defeating the National League, which scored 8 runs and 12 hits.
The Rockies represented the National League in the 2007 World Series. Coors Field hosted games three and four of the Series. The Boston Red Sox won all four games.
In recent years, a number of non-baseball events have been held at Coors Field. In 2015, the field hosted its first major concert, when the Zac Brown Band played in front of 42,000 spectators. The National Hockey League’s Colorado Avalanche played a home game at Coors Field in February 2016 as part of the NHL’s Stadium Series. They lost to the Detroit Red Wings by a score of 5-3.
