Rockies centerfielder Randal Grichuk thinks feeling at home in the vast outfield of Coors Field may take nothing more than a homestand or two.
It’s become an outfield reorientation for Grichuk and fellow Rockies newcomer Kris Bryant. Playing a little deeper is a necessity at Coors, given there’s so much ground to cover. The ball also carries even more in the thin air at a mile high.
Part of the hitter-friendly park’s trickiness also has to do with its asymmetrical design. The varying dimensions makes patrolling the grounds that much more of a challenge.
