History of Coors Field
Ground was broken on the stadium on October 16, 1992. Coors Field was completed a little after two years later. Besides Dodger Stadium, Coors Field is the only park that was strictly built and used for baseball.
Originally, the stadium was planned to be somewhat smaller. After the Colorado Rockies drew in 4.5 million people during their first season, they decided to alter the stadium and add additional seating.
During construction the workers came upon several dinosaur fossils, including a 1,000 pound triceratops skull. At first they considered naming the stadium “Jurassic Park” but ended up with Coors Field instead.
