Monday, June 22, 2015 – Roy and I love professional baseball and football so traveling to Denver to see Coors Field and Mile High Stadium was a must do on our schedule. Roy wanted to see Mile High Stadium and I wanted to go to Coors Field and watch a game there. We compromised and are going to tour both stadium for less than the cost of a ticket to see the Rockies play. We started the day at the Denver Rockie’s Coors Field for the 10 am tour.
The center field bleacher section is named “The Rockpile”.
While most of the seats in Coors Field are dark green, the seats in the 20th row of the upper deck are purple. This marks the city’s one mile elevation point.
Behind the center field wall is a landscape decoration that reflects the typical environment of the Rocky Mountains. This landscape area consists of a waterfall, fountains, and pine trees. After a Rockies home run or win the fountains shoot high into the air.
Built in 1999, Coors Field has a capacity of 50,398 sitting on 76 acres. Fans sitting in the first-base and right-field areas are treated to a spectacular view of the Rocky Mountains.
The exterior of the stadium:
