The Colorado Rockies baseball team is back in action in 2017!
The team plays about a dozen games each month at Coors Field, which is conveniently located in downtown Denver.
If you want to grab a drink or meal before or after the game, there are plenty of great dining options nearby. We've listed some popular places below.
While at the ballpark, take note of the row of purple seats. This row is exactly one-mile high!

The Colorado Rockies got their start when Major League Baseball awarded a National League expansion team to Denver in 1991. On April 5, 1993, the team played its first game against the New York Mets in Shea Stadium. On April 9, its first home opener, more than 80,000 fans showed up at Mile High Stadium to cheer on their new team.
The Rockies played at Mile High until Coors Field opened in 1995. Thanks to the stadium's altitude and thin air, baseballs travel farther here thereby turning average hitters into power sluggers.
The Rockies have one pennant — the 2007 National League Championship. They went on to face the Boston Red Sox in the World Series but were swept in four games.
Former first baseman Todd Helton is the only player to have his number (17) retired. The five-time All Star played his entire career with the Rockies and set many single-season records.
