On Wednesday, MLB officially announced the cancelation of two more series to start the 2022 MLB season. As a result, the official home opener for the Colorado Rockies has been canceled, as the Rockies were slated to host the Los Angeles Dodgers for their home opener at Coors Field on April 8.
In addition, the rest of the three-game series with the Dodgers and the two-game series in Arlington, Texas with the Texas Rangers has been canceled as well.
As of this publication, Opening Day would be April 14 at Coors Field against the Chicago Cubs but that could easily change in the next week or so, depending on negotiations with the MLB lockout.
But now that the official Opening Day at Coors Field is canceled, will the Colorado Rockies refund Opening Day tickets?
The Colorado Rockies are refunding tickets for Opening Day at Coors Field
The Colorado Rockies announced on Wednesday that single-game ticket buyers for Opening Day and the opening series of the year at Coors Field against the Los Angeles Dodgers will automatically receive refunds for their tickets.
Additionally, season ticket holders, passport holders, and group and suite buyers will be contacted directly. They can also visit rockies.com/tickets for more details on receiving credit and/or refunds.
As for the teams the Rockies were facing, the Rockies already have two series canceled where they would have faced the Los Angeles Dodgers. Now, the next time the two teams are slated to face each other is at Coors Field on June 27.
Since it was interleague play, the Rockies will not be heading to Texas at all now. However, they faced them in both 2020 and 2021 in Texas.
If the lockout looms longer than it has of this publication, here are the next home series that will be on the chopping block.
- April 14-17 vs. the Chicago Cubs (which includes April 15, also known as Jackie Robinson Day)
- April 18-20 vs. the Philadelphia Phillies
- April 29-May 1 vs. the Cincinnati Reds
- May 3-5 vs. the Washington Nationals
