Humidor having big impact on Colorado Springs Sky Sox games - Irv Moss, The Denver Post

Colorado Springs is still a launching pad, but in the year-plus since the triple-A team installed a humidor, scoring has noticeably decreased. Just last night the Sky Sox won a 13 inning game 1-0. No one will confuse Security Service Field with Petco Park, but conditions are now closer to normal.

That's probably because UZR inexplicably hates Carlos Gonzalez, but Arenado and Tulowitzki are easily tops in the infield.
