One Day To Go!! The Rockies Work Out for Charity.

 With 12 teams starting today here in the 5280 we still have a day to wait. The Colorado Rockies held a workout for charity. It is a practice session that they do a short autograph signing and then a complete before game work out.

So my day started by parking up on the north side of Lodo and taking my walk to Coors Field. As I was walking you can see the anticipation on the street for opening day.

The Blake Street Tavern had their sign ready for their Opening Day Party and had the Flags of the Rockies and Root Sports hanging out front.

 So I followed the purple stripe down Blake St. Which leads you right to Coors Field, not that I needed direction.
