This $215 million park was originally designed to seat 43,800. But after Mile High Stadium had experienced record numbers in 1993-'94, Rockies ownership paid to increase the capacity to more than 50,000 for facility's debut in 1995. Some 120,000 square feet of sod that covers the field is grown at Graff Turf Farms in Fort Morgan, Colo. It's a mixture of four bluegrass and two rye-grass strains. The playing field has 45 miles of wiring for an underground heating system, which enables groundskeepers to quickly melt any snow accumulation.
Climb up to the 20th row of the upper deck at Coors Field, which is painted purple in a sea of green seats, and you'll be exactly one mile above sea level. And if you're really brave, grab some Rocky Mountain oysters from a concession stand. Despite the park's name, there's a wide variety of brews to choose from to wash them down. Located in Denver's bustling LoDo district, there are many bars, restaurants and cafes a short stroll away. For more on the Coors Field experience, including a game-day itinerary, visit Wise Guides.
