is located in Denver, Co and is the home of the Colorado Rockies. Coors Field was the first new stadium added in a six-year period in which Denver’s sports venues were upgraded, along with Pepsi Center and Sports Authority Field at Mile High. It was also the first baseball-only National League Park since Dodger Stadium was built in 1962.
The center field bleachers are known as “The Rockpile.” During the 1993 and 1994 seasons when the team played at Mile High Stadium, the Rockpile was located in the south stands, which were in dead center field and far away from home plate. The same design was incorporated into Coors Field with the Rockpile located in deep center field, however it is much higher in the new stadium. The original Rockpile seats sold for $1 each.
During construction, workers discovered dinosaur fossils throughout the excavation site, including a 7-foot-long 1,000-pound triceratops skull which slowed down construction. Because of fossil discoveries, “Jurassic Park” was considered as a tongue-in-cheek name that was considered for the stadium. The discovery of the fossils did lead to the selection of a dinosaur as the Rockies’ mascot, “Dinger.”
While most of the seats in Coors Field are dark green, the seats in the 20th row of the upper deck are purple. This marks the city’s one mile elevation point.
The Blue Moon Brewery at The Sandlot is a microbrewery/restaurant that is behind the Right Field Stands, with an entrances from the inside of Coors Field as well as Blake Street. The brewery is operated by the Coors Brewing Company and experiments with craft beers right inside the stadium, the popular Blue Moon Belgian Style Wheat Beer was created in the micro brewery here. Every year, the micro brewery enters its new creations into the Great American Beer Festival in many different categories, and have won many awards. The restaurant is housed in a building that is attached to the stadium.
Behind the center field wall is a landscapes in a way that reflects the environment of the Rocky Mountains. The landscaping contains: a waterfall, fountains, and pine trees. After a Rockies home run or win the fountains shoot water into the air.
