When Coors Field in Colorado opened on April 26, 1995, it became one of the most homer-friendly stadiums in the history of the game. Situated at 2001 Blake Street, the high-altitude stadium helped produce baseball’s second 30-homer quarter.
Hall of Fame right fielder Larry Walker had his first 100-RBI season in ’95, hitting 36 bombs. He was joined by left fielder Dante Bichette who slugged an NL-leading 40 homers, third baseman Vinny Castilla who hit 32, and first baseman Andres Galarraga who hit 31. Together they were dubbed, “The Blake Street Bombers“.
In the collection is this first day cover postmarked on April 26, 1995 from the Coors Field postal station the day the stadium opened. The envelope is signed by all four members of the Rockies 30-homer foursome.
He deserved it !! That being said, why isn’t Dwight Evans in the Hall ?
