Colorado Rockies (MLB) (1995–present)

Coors Field is a baseball park located in downtown Denver, Colorado. It is the home field of the Colorado Rockies, the city's Major League Baseball (MLB) franchise. Opened in 1995, the park is located in Denver's Lower Downtown neighborhood, two blocks from Union Station. It is named for the Coors Brewing Company of Golden, Colorado, which purchased the naming rights to the venue. The venue has a capacity of 50,144 people for baseball.

Beginning play in 1993, the Rockies spent their first two seasons at Mile High Stadium. During that time, Coors Field was constructed for a cost of $300 million. It includes 63 luxury suites and 4,526 club seats. Coors Field has earned a reputation as a hitter's park, due to the effect of Denver's high elevation and semi-arid climate on the distances of batted balls. To combat this, the outfield fences were positioned further away from home plate and baseballs used in the park have been pre-stored in humidors.

Coors Field has hosted the 1998 MLB All-Star Game, an outdoor hockey game from the 2016 NHL Stadium Series, and numerous concerts.
