Colorado Rockies Game

My parents were in downtown Denver this weekend and here's a modest photographic tribute to our time. I think the highlight for all of us was watching the Colorado Rockies defeat the Los Angeles Dodgers at Coors Field on Sunday.

Coors Field
Coors Field is definitely a really pretty ballpark. The bottom photo was our view from Section 207 in rightfield. Honestly, the view was decent and that photo doesn't do it justice.
Coors Field Capturing in-action photos was somewhat challenging. I did, however, capture the Dodgers leftfielder catching this line drive.
Pretzel Coors Field Baseball stadium pretzels rock the house! :)
Bottom: The view of centerfield before the game started.

Yankees vs. Orioles
The final score was Rockies 9, Dodgers 6 with Ubaldo Jiménez earning his first career victory. Way to go!

Also, it was particularly nice to see that the Yankees won and Boston lost that day. ;)

Coors Field One nice shot of my parents and I.
Coors Field House Rules Ah ... the Coors Field House Rules!

I must say, as someone who has attending numerous New York Yankees games during my younger years, I was very impressed with the family friendly atmosphere at Coors Field.

    Walking Around Downtown Denver
    16th Street Mall We stayed at a hotel located right on the 16th Street Mall, and I did my best to capture some night shots.
