Colorado Rockies podcast: Memories of the franchise’s early days

Etkin, along with Tracy Ringolsby, has covered the Colorado Rockies since the franchise’s first spring training at Hi Corbett Field in Tucson. Today, he writes about the Rockies for Forbes and is widely considered as one of the best sources of Colorado’s abbreviated but rich Major League Baseball history.

In our latest Rox Pile Rockies Report podcast, Etkin joined the show to talk about that very first spring training as well as the earliest days of the Colorado franchise. He shared a great story about Dale Murphy‘s short tenure with the team as well as what it meant to have Don Baylor as the first manager to ever guide the Rockies.
