The Colorado Rockies open their home games at Coors Field this season tonight against the Chicago Cubs. The Rockies have had an amazing start to their season, completing a three-game sweep of the Milwaukee Brewers in the first series of the season at Miller Park in Milwaukee.
The Rockies bats came alive, as they amassed 20 runs in the first three games of the year. Troy Tulowitzki and the Rockies could not have had a better start to their season.
The team opens their home schedule against the Chicago Cubs tonight at 7 P.M. The Cubs come into 2015 with a ton of excitement, bringing in pitcher Jon Lester from the Oakland Athletics. General Manager Theo Epstein continues his pursuit of a competitive on-field product, and there should be a great draw in addition to the fact that it is opening night. According to TiqIQ, Friday night’s Rockies tickets are going for an average price of $139.28 on the secondary market. To get into the park. it will cost $69. The remaining two games of the series, on Saturday and Sunday, are significantly cheaper. The average price for Saturday’s game is $56.80 with a minimum price of $25. Sunday’s prices decrease even further, with an average price of $50 and a get-in price of $18. Additionally, according to SuiteHop, suites at Coors Field on Saturday are going for around $3,200, which includes 12 game tickets and parking. On Sunday, suites at Coors Field are going for $3,200 as well, depending on additional amenities.
The Cubs also made an addition of Joe Maddon, who is a former AL Manager of the Year with the Tampa Bay Rays. Maddon’s experience should increase the Cubs’ odds this season. It will be important for young Rockies’ bats to get out in front of these Cubs pitchers as they did against Milwaukee. The Rockies also saw offensive explosions from Nolan Arenado and Corey Dickerson. If these players can come on strong for Colorado, they will be an extremely hard team for pitchers to play against, especially in an offensive ball park like Coors Field.
