- Major League Baseball's announcement of National League expansion came in 1985. Colorado then began a long and patient campaign, and in July of 1991 Denver managed to snag one of the two expansion franchises. Thus, the Colorado Rockies were born. The team played its first regular season in 1993 at Mile High Stadium. Two years later the Rockies set a record by being the first expansion team ever to reach post-season play prior to their ninth year of play. April to October Games are great family outings, especially in Coors Field. Tickets are readily available.
