This weekend in Denver, catch the Rockies home opener, see Dom Dolla at Red Rocks or hit the slopes for charity.

1. ⚾️ Rockies home opener

Cheer the Colorado Rockies to victory during their home opening stretch against the Tampa Bay Rays at Coors Field.

State of play: A turnaround is welcomed — but highly unlikely —after a historically poor 2023 season that saw the team lose more than 100 games.

Fun fact: In the last three years, the team has won in either the home opener (2023 and 2021) or the opening series (2022).

What we're watching: Players like center fielder Brenton Doyle, pitcher Kyle Freeland and first baseman Kris Bryant are expected to make a difference this season.

  • The first 15,000 fans to Saturday's game will receive a Brenton Doyle T-shirt.

When: 2:10pm Friday, 6:10pm Saturday, 1:10pm Sunday

Location: Coors Field

Cost: Starting at $70 (Friday), $19 (Saturday), $12 (Sunday)
