From the crack of the bat at Coors Field to the hushed anticipation of a ninth-inning pitch, the love of baseball runs deep in my family—especially for my sister Krista, the Colorado Rockies' superfan who joins me in this special episode. We take you on a nostalgic journey, reminiscing about the days of spring training autograph hunts and the electric atmosphere of the Rockies' MLB debut. Krista's vivid recollection of Eric Young's legendary home run serves as a touchstone for our shared baseball passion, illustrating how those formative moments can spark a lifetime of devotion.

Baseball is more than just a game; it's about the community, the early morning encounters with players at spring training, and the personal connections that turn fans into family. In this episode, Krista recounts her evolution from cheering in the stands to orchestrating the game's timing as a field timing coordinator at Coors Field. Her story is a testament to turning your childhood dream into a career without losing the spark of fandom, even when you're scoring the game from the press box.

Finally, we bring you a playful twist on player appreciation by constructing our ultimate Rockies lineup and, for a dash of reality TV flair, matching Rockies players with Bachelors based on first names. It's a quirky blend of sports trivia and "The Bachelor" fandom that's sure to entertain. If you're a fan of heartening stories, baseball lore, and a bit of good-natured competition, this episode hits a grand slam of memories, laughs, and unwavering loyalty to the team that's won our hearts.
