The Rockies visit UGA — sorry, fellas!

Sorry to the many Colorado Rockies who are affiliated with Georgia that for a variety of reasons wouldn’t like this (more on that below), but the Rox visited the University of Georgia’s athletic facilities on Wednesday:

The only real reason this is notable is because the Rockies have so many guys who are affiliated with Georgia, and universities around that rivals to Georgia, to make this unfortunate for most of the team.

Brooks Brown — a University of Georgia alum — and David Hale, a former Atlanta Braves’ pitcher, both are in AAA Albuquerque (and both were just optioned there!), so unfortunately they each missed their homecoming of sorts. Charlie Culberson is also a Georgia boy, though he’s been in AAA (and injured) all season.

Charlie Blackmon is, of course, a Georgia Tech alum, while Kyle Parker and Ben Paulsen are Clemson alums. For those of you who don’t know the South very well, there’s obviously no love lost between Georgia and Georgia Tech, and UGA and Clemson hate each other.

In other words, the Colorado Rockies got very little enjoyment out of their trip to Athens. (Kidding.)
