The strangest Rockies games ever

This is a fun little piece from Adam Peterson over at Rockies Zingers, covering three of the weirdest Colorado Rockies’ games in the history of the franchise. Considering this team plays at Coors Field, well, there have been quite a few of these!

Peterson has this as part one of a two-part series, so I can’t wait to see what comes next when he gives us three or four more strange ones, but his list here is interesting (I especially like this one between the Colorado Rockies and the Florida Marlins).

Besides that, I’ve got a few that stand out: the Rockies’ first game at Coors Field (Dante Bichette‘s walk off home run in the freezing cold), the play-in game to the 2007 playoffs (Jamey Carroll! Matt Holliday! Jorge Julio!), the 16-15 victory over the Dodgers that one year where Eric Young had like 27 stolen bases off Hideo Nomo… yeah, there are quite a few.

I’d even put that 16-inning game the Rockies just had against the Dodgers somewhere on the list, because those games are rare, though obviously not as strange as some others.

What about you?
