The Colorado Rockies baseball team is back in action in 2020!
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!

Are you looking for a great place to stay near the stadium? These top recommendations are within walking distance to the games.
If you want to see and meet your favorite Rockies players, then you can do that each game that they play. You can also get autographs from coaches and possibly the manager if he is on hand.
You can find them in sections 116 - 120 and sections 142-146 up to 40 minutes before game time or when batting practices ends.
Sundays are also a great time to meet and greet your favorite Colorado Rockies' players and coaches. However, the autograph signing times and locations are a bit different since these are usually day games.
They sign autographs at the bottom of sections 116 - 120 beginning at 11:20 am and ending at 12 noon. The players won't be there long, so get arrive early to get a place in line!
Want to show your team spirit or buy a souvenir? Then stop by the Colorado Rockies Dugout Store about a mile from the stadium at 535 16th Street on the 16th Street Mall.
It's easy to get to Coors Field for a Colorado Rockies baseball game. You can take either public transit or park at one of the nearby lots.
The stadium is a short walk from Union Station. Three light-rail trains stop at this station: C, E, and W.
Buses that stop near the stadium include 0, 8, 15, 20, 38, and 52.
The best (and cheapest!) place to park is at one of the official stadium lots. Three lots (A, B, and C) offer more than 4,300 spaces.
Lot entrances are are at:
The lots open about 2.5 hours before each game.
In addition to all the great places to eat and drink inside the stadium, I also have a few favorites just a few blocks away. These are great spots to check out pre- or post-game.

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.
