Colorado Rockies: What players really think about “the wave”

SEATTLE — Yesterday, we weighed in with our take on “the wave” and whether or not it should be a big part of any Colorado Rockies game at Coors Field. Spoiler alert: We don’t think so, especially when the game is close as it was on the Fourth of July when a “wave” broke out in the ninth inning.
We received so many comments about the article that we thought we would ask Rockies pitchers and position players what the thought about the wave and if it was distracting, a nuisance or just a part of America’s pastime. And what better place to ask baseball players about the wave than Seattle, a city that, legend has it, was the birthplace of the wave.
With that in mind, before the Rockies took the field to open a three-game series against the Seattle Mariners at Safeco Field, we did our research and asked our questions. We went straight to the heart of the “wave controversy” … and we will let you decide if you think you should be a part of the man-made tsunami the next time it ripples through the stands at Coors Field.
