Coors Field will be hosting the All-Star Game on July 13. Denver's Mayor, Micheal Hancock, is expecting Coors Field to be at 100 percent capacity by the time the MLB All-Star Game comes to Colorado.

The first game where masks will no longer be required by Coors Field to gain entry into the stadium will be against the Arizona Diamondbacks starting at 6:40 p.m. Currently, the Colorado Rockies are the worst team in the National League. The Rockies' current record is 15-29. At home, they have done far better than on the road. This season's home game record is currently at 13-12. The Colorado Rockies have only won two of 19 total games this season.
