The Colorado Rockies are a professional baseball team based in Denver, Colorado. They are a member of the National League West Division in Major League Baseball (MLB). The team was founded in 1991 and played their first game in 1993 at Coors Field, their current home stadium.
The Rockies have a strong tradition of strong offense and power hitting, thanks in part to the team's home field, Coors Field, which is known for its high altitude and thin air, which makes it a hitter-friendly park. The team's offensive stars have included players such as Larry Walker, Todd Helton, and Nolan Arenado.
The Rockies have had some success in the past, winning the National League pennant in 2007, but have not won a World Series yet. In recent years, the team has focused on building a strong farm system and developing young talent, with the goal of building a sustainable winning team.
The team's current manager is Bud Black, who was hired in 2017. He has led the team to a number of winning seasons, and has been credited with improving the team's defense and pitching. The team's pitching staff has been led by German Marquez, Jon Gray, and Kyle Freeland.
The Rockies are known for having a dedicated and passionate fan base, and games at Coors Field are often sold out. The team has also been involved in the community through various charitable initiatives, including the Colorado Rockies Charity Fund.
