Rockies Look to Improve on Last Year's Finish

Baseball season is nearly here and Colorado Rockies fans are excited for the upcoming year. The Rockies are coming off a last place finish in the NL West, winning 74 games last year to go along with 88 losses.  With the Dodgers at the top of the heap and the Giants just one year removed from a World Series title, it will certainly be a difficult division to win, but is far from impossible.

The biggest concern will be the health of their two stars, Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki.  If CarGo and Tulo can give them 150 games each, they will certainly be in it late in the year.  Throw in offseason acquisition Brett Anderson – another major health risk – and the Rockies certainly don’t appear to be a beacon of low risk, but they do have talent up and down the roster. Catcher Wilin Rosario and infielders Nolan Arenado and DJ LeMahieu highlight a young and potentially powerful lineup that could put up big numbers at Coors Field.

For fans looking to grab some Rockies tickets and check them out in April, the cheapest series starts on April 8th against the Chicago White Sox. On that day, they will offer a free T-Shirt to all who attend the game and it will only cost you $10 to get in to the building. The average ticket price for this game is $47 so you can certainly find some very good seats for less than $100.  For the second game of the series, it is $1 Hot Dog night at Coors, a fan favorite wherever you go. The cheapest ticket is only $9 while the average ticket price is $48. For the final game of the series, the cheapest ticket will be $10, so you can go to the entire series for less than 30 bucks.
