25 stunning photos of Coors Field as the Rockies celebrate their 25th anniversary season

DENVER — Built in 1995, Coors Field, the home of the Rockies, is the third-oldest stadium in the National League.

Coors Field is pretty special. It has a heated infield and grass, holds the record for the most homers at any ballpark in one season, and is tied with Fenway Park for the most cycles hit in a ballpark.

The Rockies even won their first game at Coors Field on April 26, 1995. The game ended in a home run in extra innings as the Rockies beat the New York Mets, 11-9.

Because the Rockies are celebrating their 25th anniversary season in 2018, here are 25 stunning photos of the home of the Rockies.
