Rockies fans have mile-high hopes of a World Series championship. The Colorado Rockies Baseball Club joined the ranks of Major League Baseball as an expansion team in 1993. Thanks to the rarefied air in Denver, the franchise's Coors Field home has developed a reputation as a hitter-friendly park where even ordinary pop-ups can drift into the bleachers. Colorado earned its first National League pennant in 2007. CEO Charlie Monfort and his brother Dick have controlled the team since 2005. FOX Sports Net also owns a 14% interest in the franchise, as does brewer Molson Coors .
