Trevor Story, the 23-year-old rookie shortstop for the Colorado Rockies, is certainly getting into the swing of the new season, making history on Wednesday as being the first player in baseball to hit a home run in each of his first three Major League games.
"Let me root, root, root for the home team, if they don't win it's a shame." I know it's easy to pick on the Rockies, heck, they have finished either 4th or 5th in the NL West for the last five seasons.
As we are all riding high on the championship wave thanks to the Broncos, I couldn't help but start to wonder about what is next. Who will be the next ones to hoist a championship trophy? I remember how cool it felt when the Avalanche were winning titles and how awesome that was.
Win or lose, it's how you play the game. While they might not always be the winners, sports teams hailing from Colorado certainly do have their fair share of talented players on them and always put up a good fight regardless of their opponent.
Being a Colorado Rockies fan has been a rough thing to be. There has been very little to cheer for through the years. We have had a decent season here and there and that unforgettable World Series run but for the most part it has been brutal.
It was a scary moment during the game on Tuesday night, when a hit by Carlos Gonzales of the Colorado Rockies drilled Arizona Diamondbacks Pitcher Archie Bradley in the face, coming off of the bat at a speed of 115 mph.
