Water service restored to Coors Field for Sunday's split double-header

Broken pipe was installed in the early 1900s

Denver Water crews were able to get water flowing to Coors Field overnight and were working early Sunday morning to repair and clean up Blake Street ahead of a split double-header.
 
Around 5:30 p.m. Saturday, a 12-inch water main broke sending water flowing onto Blake Street between 20th and 21st streets. 
 
The restrooms in the stadium were not working and the Rockies had to limited concessions because of the water main break.
 
After a 30-minute delay, the game was canceled.
 
Denver Water crews brought in heavy equipment and started digging up the road.
 
The pipe was installed in the early 1900s and it was unknown what caused it to break, according to Denver Water.
 
Water service was restored to Coors Field around 12:30 a.m. Sunday.
 
Saturday's match against the Cincinnati Red will be made up Sunday at 7:10 p.m. as part of a split doubleheader.
 
Fans with a ticket for the canceled game can use their tickets for the evening game, but cannot use them for the previously scheduled game at 2:10 p.m.
 
Rockies still plan to retire Todd Helton's number 17 prior to the afternoon game in a ceremony scheduled to begin at 1:30 p.m.
 
Fan's can also exchange Saturday's ticket for another comparable seat at another game later this season.
 
There will be no cash refunds for tickets.
 
Ticket exchanges will be accepted at the Coors Field Ticket Office and all Rockies Dugout Stores, the team said.
