The Colorado Rockies and New York Mets are playing a double-header Tuesday after Monday’s game at Coors Field was snowed out. If you look at the pictures, it’s a wonder how they were able to clear out all the snow blanketing the stadium in time to play Tuesday. Coors Field is somewhere under there: twitter.com/MLB/status/324… — MLB (@MLB) April 16, 2013 Approximately 150 workers helped shovel an estimated eight inches of snow off the field. The Denver Post says the grounds crew arrived at 5:30 a.m. to begin working on the field. They have some electric coils that helped melt a few inches, but the rest of the work was done by shoveling. Team owner Dick Monfort, GM Dan O’Dowd, Mets GM Sandy Alderson, and some coaches even helped shovel the snow. The temperature at the start of the game was 39 degrees, which is tied for 10th-coldest in the team’s history. It was even lower than that midway through the first game. This has been a road trip full of bad weather for the Mets. They were in Minnesota previously and saw their Sunday game with the Twins postponed because of the weather. Now they’re experiencing more of the same in Denver. The photo below is from Monday: Tonight’s @mets-@rockies game was postponed. This photo explains why: twitter.com/MLB/status/323… — MLB (@MLB) April 15, 2013 ESPN New York reporter Adam Rubin chronicled the progress of snow removal: Snow removal is under way at Coors Field, four hours before first pitch: twitter.com/AdamRubinESPN/… — Adam Rubin (@AdamRubinESPN) April 16, 2013 Making progress at Coors Field, but won’t start on time: twitter.com/AdamRubinESPN/… — Adam Rubin (@AdamRubinESPN) April 16, 2013 Here’s the crowd that showed up for the originally scheduled start time of Game 1 at Coors Field: twitter.com/AdamRubinESPN/… — Adam Rubin (@AdamRubinESPN) April 16, 2013 And here’s how Coors Field looked on Monday: Not exactly what one would call baseball weather.
