When Colorado Rockies owner and chief operating officer Dick Monfort arrived at Coors Field at around 7:45 Tuesday morning, he found some of his employees were already shoveling the approximately eight inches of snow off the field. It wasn’t early enough. Monfort admitted the organization was unprepared by the heavy overnight snow accumulation. The snowfall, combined with the low temperatures, delayed the first game of Tuesday’s Mets-Rockies doubleheader by two hours and two minutes.
