The day Larry Walker made us cry

Sports don’t usually make me cry. Sure, I’ve cried during films such as Field of Dreams and The Rookie, but in person, it just doesn’t happen.

On Saturday, September 25, 2021, I cried watching a sporting event.

I joined a sellout crowd of over 45,000 fans to celebrate and witness the jersey number retirement of one of the greatest Rockies of all time. It didn’t matter that the team was out of contention or the fact they were about to play the best team in the National League, I was there for one thing: Larry Kenneth Robert Walker.
