The Colorado Rockies are a professional baseball team that plays in Major League Baseball (MLB). The Rockies are a member of the West division in the National League (NL). The Rockies began play in 1993 as an expansion team in the NL. The team has not won a division title but has made the playoffs five times as a Wild Card. The Rockies won 14 of their final 15 games in the 2007 season to make the playoffs and won their first and only NL Pennant that season. The Rockies were swept by the Red Sox in the World Series and have yet to win a World Series title.

The Rockies play their home games at Coors Field in Denver, Colorado. Coors Field is famous for being a “hitter’s park” because the ball goes further off the bat in higher altitude. The team has struggled to find consistent pitching throughout its history but has had some great hitters. Players like Todd Helton, Larry Walker, Dante Bichette, Troy Tulowitzki, and Carlos Gonzalez have fueled the Rockies lineups throughout the years.
