Colorado Springs Sports & Outdoors: 7 reviews and 9 photos


The Colorado Springs Sky Sox are the Colorado Rockies highest level (AAA) minor league farm team, and they play in the Pacific Coast League. Sky Sox Stadium seats 8,500 and was completed in 1988 at a cost of $3.7 million. The stadium is off of Powers and Barnes on the east edge of town, it holds 8,500 people, and tickets cost $5 to $9. The season runs from April to September with games almost every night.

This is a great venue for families as tickets are inexpensive and the team has great family promotions. Being AAA, the quality of ball is very good, and many current, future, and past major leaguers fill the roster. When I was there in the mid-late 1990s, I got to see Roberto Clemente's nephew (Edgard Velazquez Clemente) as well as perennial Major League All Star Todd Helton, and future Major League Hall of Famer Larry Walker.
