Black on players’ generosity during this time

Arenado, Trevor Story, Raimel Tapia, Ian Desmond, Jon Gray, Tony Wolters, and Daniel Murphy (and others) have been in the news lately for their donations to minor leaguers impacted by the coronavirus as well as their donations to the general public in the USA and elsewhere.

Black explained that he knows of some other Rockies players that wished to remain anonymous as they donated to the many causes in this time of need. The Rockies organization matched all donations as well. As Black said, “it shows you what type of people we have and it’s a tribute to our organization…”

Black talks about you, the fans

Corrigan and Black also discussed that during this time, the Rockies have had “very few” season ticket holders have asked for refunds, which is a testament to the tens of thousands of season ticket holders and other Rockies fans and your loyalty to the franchise.
