Opening Week 2009

The 2009 season has officially begun.  The Rockies played their home opener against the Phillies on Friday.  We weren’t able to get tickets for Opening Day, but I did snag 4 tickets to see the Rockies vs. Phillies on Saturday. 

It felt good to be back at Coors Field.  Here’s Mom and I hanging out before the game.

4.11.09-2.jpgIt wasn’t long before Tulo hit a bomb into the pond out in centerfield. 
4.11.09-3.jpgThe Phillies had all of their heavy hitters in the lineup and quickly mounted a comeback.  Here’s SS JImmy Rollins. 
 

4.11.09-4.jpg Here’s Chase Utley at bat.
4.11.09-5.jpgHe was followed by Ryan Howard. 
4.11.09-6.jpgThe Rockies brought in newly aquired Jason Hammel for some relief pitching. 
4.11.09-7.jpgHe had a tough outing and gave up a few runs.  Hopefully he was just having some jitters about his first start in a Rockies uniform.

The Rockies just couldn’t hold on and wound up losing 8-4.  Oh well.  It still felt pretty good to be back at the ballpark. 

Here’s me and the Grans.

Hey Baby Paul, sorry the Phillies beat your Rockies at your first game of the year. I didn’t get to see much of it on TV, but it looks like you had a nice day weather-wise!

Hey Baby Paul,
The ballpark looks beautiful from your seats. I’m sorry that your team lost. I often say that it will be the youth that help make this great game better in the future. Keep up the enthusiasm and Go Rockies!
