ABOUT COORS FIELD...
Coors Field opened in 1995 in the Lower Downtown neighborhood of Denver and seats more than 50,000 fans. Playing off of Denver's love for microbreweries, fans can find the Blue Moon Brewery located behind right field which features craft beers and also serves as a restaurant. Also unique to Denver, the 20th row of seats are purple to determine the mile high point of the stadium.
Due to the low air density in Denver, it's known as one of the most offensive friendly parks in the country and gives up a large number of home runs.
