About Coors Field:
Coors Field was built in 1995 with the expansion of the Rockies in 1993. All the seats are dark green, except for the 20th row, which is purple and represents the mile-high altitude.
The designers of Coors Field knew that it was going to be a home run friendly park (due to the low air density, the ball travels further) so they made the outfield one of the biggest in the major leagues. Even still, Coors Field has set the record, and broke it again, since 1995 for most home runs in a season.
Because of the enormous outfield, Coors Field has not only given up the most home runs since its inception, but also the most doubles and triples.
