The Coors Field is a baseball park, situated in Denver, Colorado. It was the first new stadium added in six years among the Denver sports venues. The construction started on 16th October 1992. CMTS, Inc. managed the project, and the chief architectural firm that constructed the ballpark was HOK Sport (now known as Populous). An estimated amount of US$300 million was spent on the construction of the Coors Field. On 26th April 1995, the stadium was finally opened to spectators. The Coors Field is considered as a home run friendly park. It is 5,200 feet above the sea level which makes it the highest ballpark in the major leagues. The entire field has been installed with Kentucky Bluegrass or the Perennial Ryegrass. The stadium is operated by the Colorado Rockies Baseball Club Ltd. and owned by the Denver Metropolitan Major League Baseball Stadium District. The stadium has been the home of Colorado Rockies of the MLB since 1995.
