Rockies don away threads at Coors to commemorate inaugural game against Mets

Along with the Marlins, the Rockies are celebrating the 20th anniversary of their debut season this year. Twenty years seems like a long time ago -- Julio Franco was still in his 30's, Free Willy hit the box office and Michael Jackson made music for Free Willy.

Anyway, the Rockies took on the Mets in their first-ever game back on April 5, 1993 at Shea Stadium. Doc Gooden pitched a four-hit shutout and the Amazins won 3-0. On Tuesday night, the two teams commemorated their historic Queens' matchup by wearing some throwback threads at Coors Field -- the Mets in home gear and the Rockies donning an away set. Still no word if CarSnow Gonzalez received a jersey.
