06.22.15 Denver Rockie’s Coors Field tour

Monday, June 22, 2015 – Roy and I love professional baseball and football so traveling to Denver to see Coors Field CoorsFieldand 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”.
