Spacious, wild and beautiful: Those words describe both the American West, and Coors Field, home of the Colorado Rockies. Coors Field parking is the gateway to a unique ballpark experience, giving locals and out-of-towners a flavor of the region.
The savviest fans in Denver will take right-field seats, as those provide the sightlines to the Rocky Mountains beyond the left field bleachers. The snow-capped landscape is visible during the day, especially when the sun’s out and the sky’s blue. Then as twilight hits, the Rockies transform into a jagged silhouette just before the sun tucks itself behind the mountain range. For night games, fans want to make sure they secure Rockies parking before first pitch to get inside the stadium inside to watch the natural show.
It’s doesn’t beat a sunset over the Rockies, but the interior park offers up some western motifs, like the park beyond the outfield. Beyond the center-field wall is a waterfall and some pine trees, snapshotting the Rocky Mountains’ environment. Up over the mini-forest is the “Rockpile,” the center-field bleachers where the die-hards settle for games. The center-field wall sits a whopping 415 behind home plate, an homage to the dimensions at the old Mile High Stadium and a feature to encapsulate that range out west.
An unintentional effect of a Rocky Mountain setting is the havoc the low air density plays on the baseballs. The lack of humidity allows balls to fly off bats and travel through the air unfettered. It also doesn’t impede balls thrown by pitchers as well, causing less movement on breaking balls. This equates to a pitcher’s nightmare, and led to the creation of a giant humidor to restore humidity to baseballs to curb the inflated offensive numbers put up in the ballpark in the 90’s.
