Franchise history

The Colorado Rockies joined the National League as an expansion franchise in 1993, along with the Florida Marlins. The team set attendance records in its days back at Mile High Stadium, and was the first team in the history of Major League Baseball to record over 4,000,000 fans in annual attendance.

In 1995, the Rockies moved in to a new stadium, Coors Field, where they have played their home games ever since. That year, they made their first and, to date, only post-season appearance as the National League Wild Card team where they lost in the first round of the playoffs to the Atlanta Braves.

Interestingly, the Rockies, since their inception, have always tended to have a strong hitting squad and home record, which are offset by a weak bullpen and road record. This can be attributed to the conditions of Coors Field, whose thin air makes hitting much easier.
