Dear Military Personnel,

The Colorado Rockies are excited to invite you to a special celebration of Memorial Day at Coors Field on Monday, May 28, 2007 for the Colorado Rockies 1:05pm game against the St. Louis Cardinals. This offer includes complimentary tickets, as well as a unique on-field celebration prior to the game.

Tickets: All military personnel in uniform and all veterans who join us for this event will receive a complimentary ticket to the game and the option to purchase additional tickets for only $8 per ticket (regular price up to $38). For groups of 10 or more, please email or call Tim Kelsch ( or 303.312.2426) no later than 5:00pm MDT on Friday, May 25, 2007 to order tickets. All other ticket requests must be made in person at the Colorado Rockies main ticket office at Coors Field (near the corner of Blake and 20th Streets). The preference is for you to be in uniform, but at a minimum please have your Military identification in hand in order to receive your complimentary ticket and additional discounted tickets. The ticket office is open Thursday and Friday from 9am - 6pm, Saturday 930am to 4pm and on game day, Memorial Day, beginning at 9am.

Pre-game Celebration: We will also be hosting a special on-field, pre-game ceremony for all uniformed military personnel who attend the game. In order to participate in the ceremony, military personnel must report in uniform, with their game ticket in hand, to Gate A by 11:45am.

We are very proud to combine Memorial Day with America 's National Pastime and look forward to seeing you at the ballpark on Monday
