Colts Gear Up for Home Opener
After playing six games on the road, the Colts will finally play in front of their home crowd. They will take on the Slammers this Thursday at Cowboy Field.
The home opener games are set to be played at 3 and 5:30.
The Colts played three games this past weekend against the Black Bears and Arvada Colts, going 1-2 and having the final game rained out. The last game against the Arvada Colts has been rescheduled to June 25.
“After an hour and a half rain delay we had to take our starter out which definitely didn’t help. Even into the 6th inning we were only down be three; it just got away from us there at the end. I definitely don’t think they are that much better than us,” Colts Coach James Clark said of Sunday’s game.
Coach Clark said that it be nice to finally be able to play at home.
“It’ll be nice just to have a crowd. Obviously, we've had some people on the road but it hasn't been anything like it will be here,” Clark said.
Clark also said his team is now becoming familiar with Cowboy Field and they believed that they could use the park to their advantage.
"We're just kind of used to this field now and it will be nice to actually be able to play and have our outfielders actually run some balls down."
The Colorado Slammers are located in Englewood, CO, are 3-5 on the season.
Laramie native and Colts pitcher Ryan Spiker said he was excited about getting to finally play at home.
“We are really excited to be able to come back here and give back to the community that allowed us to come here and be a part of all of this,” Spiker said.
Tickets cost $5 for adults and $3 for children and seniors over the age of 60. For more information about the Colts ticketing info, click here.
