Rockies fans prepare for a cold, snowy home opener

DENVER -- Snow, ice and blustery wind could make the Rockies' home opener feel more like winter instead of spring.

Fans at the Rockies store at Coors Field were busy buying jackets, hats and other warm purple appeal ahead of Friday's game against the Atlanta Braves.

Friday could be the coldest home opener in Rockies franchise history.

“You’ve got to be Colorado tough and just deal with the weather and just enjoy the ballgames,” fan Andy Vigil said.

Workers at Coors Field said they are stocking up on extra hot chocolate.
