It's Opening Day, the evening of April 26, 1995, and Rockies right-hander Bill Swift has just uncorked the first official pitch at Denver's brand new Coors Field. A bundled-up crowd of 47,228 will watch Mets leadoff batter Brett Butler slap the fastball deep into the hole at short and reach safely on the infield hit. The Rockies will escape the inning unscathed and go on to score two runs in their first at bat.
Product FeaturesAn entertaining game will follow, with Colorado overcoming one-run deficits in the ninth, 13th and 14th innings. In the 14th, Dante Bichette's three-run homer off Mike Remlinger will give Colorado a thrilling 11-9 victory. The other Rockies on the field for the historic first pitch are Joe Girardi (C), Andres Galarraga (1B), Roberto Mejia (2B), Walt Weiss (SS), Vinny Castilla (3B), Bichette (LF), Mike Kingery (CF) and Larry Walker (RF). Replacement umpires Terry Bovey (HP), Mike Riggers (1B), Joe Padilla (2B) and Dick Jackson (3B) ring the infield, while Frank Howard (1B) and Mike Cubbage (3B) man the Mets coaching boxes. Features
