In a story that has been beat to death, and rightfully so the last few weeks, the day is finally here. Kyle Freeland gets to make his MLB debut in front of his hometown fans. Thomas Harding does a masterful job of describing just what it means to Freeland.
For your convenience, Rox Pile has compiled the best defensive plays from the first few days of the season all in one place. Might be a good one to bookmark for when things get rough!
Nick Groke opens the season with a bang, in the first of a season long series on the 25th season of baseball in Denver. It’s a human interest story about the way Denver celebrates opening day, and how the Rockies birth helped to revitalize LoDo, and the way the team has grown with the city. It’s another excellent read from Groke, who never disappoints.
