We were lucky to win Coors Light Silver Seats to see the Colorado Rockies Opening Week.
It was the best weather all Spring, 65° at 7 PM is a big deal. This means a lot since we normally go from Winter right into Summer, skipping Spring completely.
We parked in the Rockies main lot for $15. Which I highly recommend, it is cheaper than the lots around the stadium. (I've paid $20 many times thinking I got a better deal, Lesson Learned). Each lot has a few shuttle stops, the shuttle will drop you right at the stadium gate. You wait only seconds, since many shuttles are in use, before one arrives to pick you up.
You can also ride a rickshaw driven by a gentleman with an Amish beard. However, I had my own Amish beard accompany me on the shuttle.
As we shuffle off the shuttle I ask my husband to snap a photo of me infront of Coors Field. I thought I'd look great with the stadium behind me. However, his picture skills, turned out to look like I was standing in front of some random brick wall, completely missing the giant Coors Field sign. Thanks Honey.
We had seats 7 & 8, but no one was in seats 1-6 so we spread out a little. I could actually see the look on a batters face when he struck out. Kids were going down talking to players in between innings and balls were always tossed in the rows around me. Foul ball after foul ball was all around me. One even went directly into a suite. It was pure madness. It was extremely exciting. My husband can be embarrassed because I'm a screamer! Hit a home run or a close call and you will hear a scream that only comes out at Baseball and Concerts. He smirks.
He and I both have loved Baseball since childhood so it made a perfect date.
It brings out the kid in you.
Did you know the Colorado Rockies have a mascot? I didn't. His name is Dinger the Dinosaur. Hecame by and had some fun with us.
The Rockies blew away the New York Giants. It was an AMAZING game.
I look forward to this Baseball Season and taking my daughter to her first game!
