VIDEO: First hit in Colorado Rockies’ history

The Colorado Rockies played their first game on April 4, 1993, at Shea Stadium. Unfortunately they faced Doc Gooden that day, one of the 100 greatest pitchers or all-time and a member of the Mets All-Time Team. Gooden shut them out that day, but there were many firsts for the Rockies.

The first batter in franchise history was Eric Young. Who admitted he was a little nervous “making history.” Later in the game, a baby-faced first baseman stroked the first hit in Colorado Rockies’ history. Watch the brief video below for more about Andres Galarraga and that special day in 1993.
