About Colorado Rockies

Colorado Rockies ticketsColorado Rockies joined the National League in 1993, along with the Southern Florida franchise, the Florida Marlins. The Rockies' first pick in the expansion draft was pitcher David Nied from the Atlanta Braves organization. Nied pitched 4 seasons for the Rockies.

On October 1, the Rockies beat the Milwaukee Brewers 9-2, completing a season sweep of the Brewers and clinching the Rockies' second playoff appearance in three years.
