While the world of sports is stuck on pause amid the global coronavirus pandemic, it doesn’t mean we can’t watch some baseball.
MLB.com shared a list of five classic major league baseball for every team in the league that you can watch for free on YouTube. Here’s what they chose for the Rockies:
- Rockies at Braves, April 17, 2010: Remember when Ubaldo Jimenez was unstoppable for the Rockies? Here he was at his peak, pitching the first no-hitter in Colorado history.
- Padres at Rockies, June 8, 2013: Long before he became a perennial all-star and Gold Glove winner, Nolan Arenado was a rookie. Here was his first walk-off home run.
- Rockies at Diamondbacks, April 5, 2016: Trevor Story had one of the most amazing debuts in MLB history, crushing seven homers in his first six games. This was his first game.
- Padres at Rockies, Sept. 18, 2016: Jon Gray strikes out 16 against the visiting Padres. Sixteen.
- Giants at Rockies, June 18, 2017: It feels like it was yesterday. Nolan Arenado needed a home run to hit for a cycle. He did it in the bottom of the ninth inning with two men on for a walk-off victory on Father’s Day.
