What To Expect At A Grand Junction Rockies Baseball Game
It's long been said that baseball is America's favorite pastime so it's the perfect time to highlight Grand Junction's very own baseball team, the Grand Junction Rockies.
Of course, in today's world when you mention American's favorite pastime, you're likely to get some differing opinions, but it's something that doesn't need debated. The fact is, baseball has been a part of American culture for nearly 150 years. Most of us aren't baseball players - though many of us did play little league. From tee-ball all the way up to the major leagues, whether it's as a player, a parent, or a spectator, baseball is part of our way of life in the United States and has been for a long time.
Grand Junction Is A Baseball Town
Grand Junction is a big baseball town thanks in large part to its hosting the Junior College World Series for more than 60 years. On top of that, is the great winning tradition of the Colorado Mesa University baseball program. Then in 2011, Grand Junction became the new home for what would be the Grand Junction Rockies.
Grand Junction's Hometown Team
For years, Grand Junction's minor league team was affiliated with the Colorado Rockies before the Pioneer League became an independent league prior to the 2021 season. But, regardless of their affiliation, the GJ Rockies are our hometown team and we proudly cheer them on.
If you have never been to a GJ Rockies game before, you should. It's a lot of fun. Take a look at the photos below to get an idea of what you can expect when you go.
