Coors Field:  Denver, Colorado

Coors Field baseball stadium opened in 1995, adding a venue for baseball to the Mile High City. Home base for the Colorado Rockies, the stadium seats 50,455 fans. The Rockies, part of the National League, are one of the youngest teams in Major League Baseball. Until the Rockies made it to the World Series in 2007, most games did not sell out, with the exception of the popular July 4th game with fireworks.

Other Important Info:
  • For baseball fans on a budget, Rockpile tickets are available for $4. There is a limit of four tickets per person per game.
  • Baseballs go further at high altitude because the air is thinner. A baseball will travel 9 percent farther at 5,280 feet than at sea level.
  • Look for the purple row of seats in the 20th row of the upper deck. The purple row marks 5,280 feet of elevation, otherwise known as a mile above sea level.
