Local Sports: Rockies Caravan visits Grand Junction

The Colorado Rockies major league club visited the Grand Valley on Sunday afternoon apart of their 2018 Rockies Caravan.

Trevor Story, Scott Oberb, Tom Murphy, and Mike Dunn made the trip to Grand Junction to have lunch and a question and answer session with Grand Junction Rockies season ticket holders. It gave fans the chance to see a different side of the players.

"They remember where they came from even though they are in the big leagues now. I love to see that side of them and think they appreciate us as fans," said longtime fan Dianne Wheeler.

After the lunch concluded the team put on a kids clinic attended by more than 50 youngsters. They had the chance to hit, field, and throw with some of the best players the game has to offer. For the kids it is something that they wont forget.

"It is really amazing because we are allowed to come here and be able to work with the Colorado Rockies,"said kids camp participant Danielle Silva.

The Colorado Rockies 2018 Caravan will continue through the 20th of January in the Denver Metro area.
