Nothing is quite as exciting in Colorado sports as cheering on the home team at Coors Field during the Colorado Rockies game on opening day. This year’s home opener is bigger than ever, as the Colorado Rockies take on the Arizona Diamondbacks, April 4, 2014.  As if showing your Rockies pride in a sea of avid fans, foam fingers, and purple caps isn’t reason enough, we offer a few tricks and tips to help you bring your A-game to opening day.

WHAT’S NEW FOR 2014

Rooftop Renovation | The Rooftop is a new 38,000 square foot destination constructed in the Upper Rightfield deck, providing stunning panoramic views of Downtown Denver and the Front Range.  Tavern Ballpark and the CHUBurger Colorado Craft Casual Grill are two premium/bar eateries featured in this two-tiered area.  Fans will also enjoy an urban garden setting, VIP Cabanas, numerous televisions and live pre-game entertainment. General Admission tickets with access to seating near The Rooftop for all April games are now on sale.  Ticket prices start at $14 and each ticket includes $6 in concession or merchandise credit that can be used throughout Coors Field.

GAME DAY TIPS

Keep Your Eye On The Ball | Games here move at a faster pace. High altitude dries and hardens the baseballs, so they actually fly 9 percent faster up in the mountains. Known as a “hitter’s park,” and ranked by Travel and Leisure magazine as one of America’s Best Baseball Stadiums, Coors Field tends to get high-scoring games with quite a few home runs.

Affordable Rockpile bleacher seats (as low as $4) in the stadium’s brick warehouse offers a nod to the surrounding LoDo (lower downtown) neighborhood, and gives a great bird’s eye view of all the action. Prices range from $5 to $185, without a bad seat in the house. Bonus – opening day promotion includes a Rockies baseball magnet to all ticketed guests while supplies last.

Parking | Come prepared by purchasing an affordable parking pass which makes traveling to and from the stadium a breeze. Insider tip – opt for Lot B which costs a mere $13 and is a short walk to the gates. Bring cash if you plan to park in the un-zoned lots which can range from $20 to $40-plus, varying by location.

Fan Favorites | Don’t leave Coors Field without sampling a few ballpark favorites, from savory hot dogs to roasted peanuts, and local craft beer. Check out five baseball-themed beers to drink on opening day here.  Another opening day must – Rockies Magazine. Get the inside scoop on all things Rockies baseball and stay up-to-date on stadium amenities. This low-cost sports rag doubles as a great memento and includes a scorecard for tracking stats during the game.
