The Rockies have rescheduled their game against the Pittsburgh Pirates—originally a 6:40PM night game—to 3:10PM, branding the day “Opening Day 2.0.” Essentially a full capacity do-over of 2021’s April 1st Opening Day, the Rockies plan to launch fireworks during the national anthem, as well as give away a commemorative t-shirt for the event.
The Rockies began the 2021 season with an approved capacity of 42.6% (approximately 21,000 fans) before increasing capacity to 70% (approximately 35,000 fans) starting June 1st. Coors Field is now clear to host a full capacity crowd for Nolan Arenado’s July 1st return to Denver with the St. Louis Cardinals, as well as the 2021 All-Star Game on July 13th.
