Rockies release new Colorado state flag cap for spring training

DENVER — The Rockies unveiled a new batting practice and spring training cap that is sure to be on every fan’s wish list this year.

The new cap combines the Rockies mountain logo with the red “C” and the golden circle of Colorado’s state flag.

With Colorado State University and the Avalanche using the state flag as inspiration, it makes sense the Rockies would use it too.

CSU’s state pride gear quickly flew off the shelves.

Also on Monday, the Rockies revealed their 2018 home and away uniforms will feature a 25th anniversary season patch on the sleeve.

On their black sleeveless jerseys, the patch will be on the right chest of the uniform.

The Rockies will open the 25th anniversary season at Arizona for a three-game series, March 29-31, and in San Diego for a four-game set, April 2-5.

The Rockies begin their home schedule at Coors Field against the Atlanta Braves, on April 6.

The new gear is available at Colorado Rockies Dugout Stores, Diamond Dry Goods at Coors Field and online.
