Starting Pitchers: Bill Swift (COL) vs Bobby Jones (NYN)
First Pitch:
Attendance: 47,228
Time of Game:
Coors Field is the first active park to feature a grand slam in its first game (Yankee Stadium II: 4/16/2009), and the second (Jarry Park: 4/14/1969) among all parks (minimum 300 games). Hideo Nomo has thrown the only no-hitter at Coors Field (through 2015) and when he tossed a no-hitter at Oriole Park at Camden Yards in 2001, he became the first pitcher to throw the first no-hitters at two different active parks. His no-hitter at Coors Field is the only regular-season no-hitter with an attendance of at least 50,000. The 14-inning game between the Rockies and Mets was the longest (by innings) of any first game in a park (minimum 300 games). Three umpires---Mike Riggins, Joe Padilla, and Dick Jackson---made their MLB debuts in the first game at Coors Field.
