DENVER - When Colorado Rockies' players Troy Tulowitzki and Justin Morneau hit a combined eight home runs at the Home Run Derby Monday night, fans earned a discount on tickets next month.
For every home run hit by Tulo and Morneau, the Rockies said they would take $3 off the price of tickets in the Mezzanine and Pavilion levels for the Cubs series August 5-7.
The maximum discount was $21 dollars.
Tulo and Morneau achieved that!
Tickets in the Mezzanine and Pavilion are normally $27. With the discount they should be just $6 for August 5th, 6th and 7th.
However, for some reason the Rockies can't explain when I call them, the tickets are actually $7. The Rockies ticket office agrees the tickets should be $6, but they're showing up as $7. I wish I had a better answer on why. But $7 is still a good price, so I'm leaving this deal up.
