Rockies to Begin New Era Without Helton

February 27, 2014

It has been seven years since the magical 2007 Rockies World Series run. Rockies fans are dreaming of that day. Last season, the Rockies finished last in the NL West with a record of 77-89. Fans were certainly displeased with last year’s results, which have made expectations for this year tepid at best. Nonetheless, with Troy Tulowitzki, Carlos Gonzalez, and Michael Cuddyer leading the way, there is certainly a chance the Rockies can move out from the cellar and fight for the NL West crown.

Coors Field has always been a topic of discussion regarding the inability for Rockies pitchers and the great home splits that Rockies hitters post at home. Colorado will luckily get to start the season at home, and hopefully in great fashion. The Rockies start their home portion of their schedule on March 31st against the Arizona Diamondbacks. The D-Backs are a team that is on the rise in the NL West and a major source of competition for the Rockies. The average ticket price for the home opener is $156, while the cheapest ticket you can find is $67. For the second game of this three game set, ticket prices will drop pretty significantly, as to be expected. The average ticket price for this game is $45, while the get-in price is only $10.

For the third game of this third game set, Rockies tickets drop even further. The average ticket price for this game is $41, four dollars less than the second game. The cheapest seats you can find are going to cost you $8. So, you could go to the second and third game for a combined $18, but it would take $67 for the home opener.

For Rockies fans, they believe it could be a magical year like the one they had in 2007. This will be the first year without Todd Helton manning first base so it will be interesting to see how the Rockies fare in a new era of baseball.
