DENVER -- The Colorado Rockies are celebrating their 20th year at Coors Field and some of the players from the 1995 team that was the first to play at Coors Field have some words of wisdom for today's team.

That 1995 team was the first Rockies team in franchise history to make the playoffs.

We spoke to Dante Bichette, Darren Holmes, Larry Walker and Ellis Burks have some ideas about how the players on today's team need to take advantage of Coors Field.

See what they had to say in the video clip below.

Here's an excerpt of what Dante Bichette talked about: "We got a unique place here. I don’t think you do anything to it. You are going to have to move those pitchers in and out of the bullpen. They get worn out a little bit, but this is a place you got to use to your advantage and we bullied people when we were here and people were scared to death when they came in here. I can’t tell you the guy, but I remember a guy coming in here, a closer when a team came to town. The first thing he tells me is ‘man I heard this is a tough place to pitch.’ I was like 'oh yeah really that’s pretty obvious.' Well, he gave up two back-to-back home runs and we beat him and I was the second homer. I was like 'that guy was beat before he came in here.'”
