The Colorado Rockies just finished competing in the World Series. Even though they didn’t win, it marks a new chapter in the history of sports in Colorado. You can find out more about Colorado’s sporting past in the book Colorado: A Sports History by James Whiteside, and particularly Colorado’s baseball past in They Came to Play: A Photographic History of Colorado Baseball by Duane Smith and Mark Foster. Both of these are published by University Press of Colorado and both available from our library.
Maybe now after such a significant baseball event, they’ll need to publish a new edition of They Came to Play!
