Coors Field, home of the MLB’s Colorado Rockies
, holds the reputation as the most batter-friendly ballpark. Air is thin in the mile-high city, and the ball meets less friction, allowing it to travel further than at sea level. Curve balls curve less in this environment, and the field sees fewer strikeouts than other parks.
The ballpark itself straddles the 1-mile above-sea-level mark: upper-level seats are colored purple to mark the height. Besides baseball, the ballpark has hosted college and NHL hockey games.
More than 50 concession stands are scattered throughout the park. The site also includes the Blue Moon Brewery at The Sandlot, featuring classic brews and experimental new beers. Tailgating is not an aspect of Rockies fan culture, but fans typically gather in the nearby bars before each game. Items like outside alcohol, hard-sided containers, noisemakers and inflatables are prohibited in the park.
Situated in the heart of Denver, the park is surrounded by an array of bars and restaurants. LoDo, or the Lower Downtown neighborhood, sits just a few blocks to the southwest. This is Denver’s most historic area, and it contains some of the city’s best dining and architecture, not to mention the Denver Museum of Contemporary Art. Access the park by taking the 20th Street exit off Interstate 25. Parking is available both onsite and nearby, and visitors can purchase parking permits in advance. It’s also easily accessible through the bus and rail systems that pass through Union Station, which is only two blocks away.
