In the early 90s, Metro Denver voters approved the Metropolitan Stadium District (MSD) as part of an effort to recruit Major League Baseball. The region had spent almost 20 years beseeching baseball’s owners for a team that would fill a fan void in the Rocky Mountain West. Metro voters, suspicious of a “If we build it, they will come strategy,” opted for a “If you come, we will build it.” The Colorado Rockies and Coors Field were the outcome.
