It’s been a long winter, but as of yesterday baseball is officially back. A week from today the Rockies will return to LoDo for the home opener, that national holiday for baseball fans and warm weather aficionados alike. We’ve made it.
This week for FanPost Friday, we want to celebrate all that the first home game of the season has meant to this community over the years.
What are your favorite Opening Day memories?
(For our purposes, we’ll include the home opener in Opening Day.)
If you’ve ever been to Opening Day at Coors Field you know that it is probably the biggest party in LoDo every year, so you don’t even need a ticket into the game to enjoy some great memories around the ballpark. But there have been some stunning Opening Day games as well, and with all the pomp and circumstance, the memories made inside the park have been exceptional as well. Eric Young’s inaugural home run? Dante Bichette’s Clint Barmes’ walk offs? If you were there, tell us about it!
Share those memories with us! We’ll post our favorite responses on the front page and next week, before the first pitch of the 2018 season is thrown at Coors Field, we’ll round up all the responses in our weekly FanPost Friday recap.
Write up a FanPost (if you’ve never done one here are a couple handy guides for you) and tell us all about it. Make sure to include “FPF” in the title and we will post some of our favorites on the front page next week.
