The Colorado Rockies are an American professional baseball team based in Denver. The Rockies compete in Major League Baseball (MLB) as a member club of the National League (NL) West division.
Mile High Stadium served as the Rockies’ home for the first two seasons of their existence as an expansion team. Because they’ve played there since 1995, they’ve earned the nickname “hitter’s park” for their games. This is Colorado’s fifth straight postseason appearance after winning the Wild Card.
As a result of winning 14 of their final 15 regular-season games to secure a Wild Card position in 2007, the Colorado Rockies won their first and only National League pennant. The streak culminated in a 13-inning 9-8 victory over the San Diego Padres in the tiebreaker game affectionately known by Rockies fans as “Game 163.”
They then beat the Philadelphia Phillies and Arizona Diamondbacks in the National League Divisional Series and the National League Championship Series.
Even so, the Boston Red Sox swept them in four games to win the American League (AL) championship. The Rockies have an overall record of 2,133–2,401 from 1993 through 2021. (.470 winning percentage).
