Coors Field: A Rocky Mountain Gem In Denver
One of the first things the attentive observer may notice upon entering Denver’s Coors Field is the single row of purple upper deck seats amidst the surrounding dark green-colored seats. The explanation? The 20th row signifies the city’s one mile elevation point.
Completed in 1995, Coors is home to the National League West Division’s Colorado Rockies. The first “baseball-only” NL park since Dodger Stadium (1962), Coors has a seating capacity of 50,000, and was the first major-league park constructed with an underground heating system.
One of Coors’ many unique features is The Blue Moon Brewery at the Sandlot, a restaurant/microbrewery that specializes in craft beers, many of which have gone on to become mass-produced by the Coors Brewing Company.Is this new to you?

Another eye-catching feature is the landscape area beyond center field which has pine trees, a waterfall and fountains. The fountains erupt high into the air with each Rockies home run. And due to the high elevation and thin air, Coors has become known as the major league’s most friendly-hitting park. In 1999, 303 home runs were hit at Coors, the all-time record.
