McGregor Square is (almost) open
What’s so great about an entertainment and apartment complex that we can’t visit and certainly can’t afford to live in? Well, it adds value to Denver and the ballpark next door no matter how ugly it gets on the diamond.
It’s like the Rooftop. You may hate going up there as a true baseball fan and not a BroDo but it keeps people in the stands so we’re not the next version of the Montreal Expos and don’t have baseball anymore. Who knows what will be there and in the beginning, it will be a fun place to explore.
Sure, you’ll probably pay $75 for a beer but this brings permanency and reason for anyone to come to the ballpark no matter what.
Honestly, it could be an abandoned train depot for all we care. Once we can all go out again, it will be nice to go anywhere. Why not celebrate with a new experience at McGregor Square?
Also, it’s a nice way to honor a great former president of the Colorado Rockies Keli McGregor. The Square opens on December 10. You can check it out more here.
Maybe, just maybe, we can see baseball in person again in 2021
We’re under no illusion that this is a guarantee. At this point, it’d be nice just to hear that we’re going to have more than 60 games this upcoming season even if those cardboard cutouts are still behind home plate. With positive news of three COVID-19 vaccines being more than 90 percent effective, a baseball fan can dream.
Because more than a winning season, we found out that just any baseball season, no matter the length, is more than enough. Don’t know about you but before this season we never thought we took baseball games for granted. We cheered as loud and went to as many games as anyone.
But when we couldn’t get together this season, it was easy to realize that baseball was something we just came to expect. That we could set our calendars by it. We’ll never make that mistake again. We’re thankful for any baseball and we hope to see you at 20th & Blake next year
