Hotels near Coors Field: Rockies MLB Team Home Stadium

Introduction

Coors Field is far and away the most elevated MLB stadium. Sitting at an altitude of 5200 feet it is more than 4000 feet higher than the next highest, Chase Field in Phoenix.

The stadium opened in 1995 and cost $300 million to build. There is capacity for 50,144 people at baseball games which is significantly more than the original design. The capacity was expanded when during their first season playing in Mile High Stadium, the Colorado Rockies attracted 4.5 million fans in total.

The team’s mascot, Dinger, is a triceratops. This was chosen because a triceratops skull was found during the construction of the stadium.

Coors Field – Why so many homers?

During its first decade of use, the stadium earned a reputation as being home-run friendly. This was despite the fact that the playing area had been deliberately built larger than normal to allow for longer hitting at altitude. Elevation was found to be only part of the reason. Baseballs stored in dry air tended to react with more elasticity than those stored in higher humidity. This meant hits would fly that much further. In order to reduce the number of home runs, a humidor is used to store the balls used in games to make sure they behave in a similar fashion to balls at sea level.

Consequently, Coors Field has twice broken the record for most home runs in a season. The current record being set in 1999 at 303!

Since introducing the humidor the number of home runs has dropped but Coors Field remains the most hitter-friendly ballpark in Major League Baseball. 

Unlike a lot of other baseball stadiums, it doesn’t appear to be too popular for concerts. Only a handful of events with Billy Joel, the Eagles and Def Leppard the biggest acts to appear.

Game tickets are available for as little as $8!
