It's Friday afternoon, April 9, 1993, and the long-awaited moment is finally here: the first pitch of the first home game of the expansion Colorado Rockies! An Opening Day-record crowd of 80,227 is on hand at Mile High Stadium in Denver to witness Bryn Smith's pitch to Montreal Expos leadoff hitter Mike Lansing.
Product FeaturesThe pitch is a ball, but that's about the only bad news this day as the Rockies go on to rout the Expos 11-4. Also on the field for the Rockies: Joe Girardi (C), Andres Galarraga (1B), Eric Young (2B), Freddie Benavides (SS), Charlie Hayes (3B), Jerald Clark (LF), Alex Cole (CF) and Dante Bichette (RF). The flags are at half staff in acknowledgement of the tragic pre-season deaths of Indians pitchers Tim Crews and Steve Olin in a boating accident.
