On Wednesday night they hosted their annual media day meet and greet with their season ticket holders. Grand Junction will kick off their season on Friday night at 6:40 P.M. taking on the Orem Owlz at Sam Suplizio Field.
Anytime you play for a Rookie ball affiliate , most of the players are either coming straight out of the first year player MLB draft.
At this level of play it is more about finding a way to develop a players skill set to take the next step in their careers as Colorado Rockies.
"We got to develop these players to win in Denver. Ever single day is about development we will do that through our early work and team meetings,"said team manager Jake Opitz.
