Colorado Rockies: Game times for 2018 officially announced
Towards the end of the 2017 season, Major League baseball announced the 2018 schedule for the Colorado Rockies. What they didn’t announce was game times. Fans have had to wait a couple of months for the game times to be announced, but Major League Baseball recently released the answer to fans.
Opening Day for the Rox in 2018 will be on Thursday, March 29 at 8:10 p.m. in Phoenix for a Wild Card game rematch with the Arizona Diamondbacks. The first home game of the year will be the following Friday, April 6 at 2:10 pm against the Atlanta Braves.
The Rockies will start most Saturday home games at either 5:15 p.m., 6:10 p.m., or 7:10 p.m. The only exception is June 23 against the Miami Marlins, which will start at 1:10 p.m.
For now, all Sunday home games are slated to begin at 1:10 p.m. Sunday game times are subject to change if Major League Baseball chooses to give Coors Field a Sunday Night Baseball game this season.
