Rockies fans created their own section to cheer on their team at Chase Field
Entering the final week of the season, the Rockies are battling for a spot in the postseason. On Sunday, they were in Chase Field looking to complete a road sweep against the D-backs. Without the home-field advantage in such a crucial game, Rockies broadcaster Ryan Spilborghs -- who loves to travel around the stadium and take in the game from a variety of vantage points -- decided to organize a fan section to cheer on the team.
If you are going to @Rockies game today in AZ. I'm going to hang out in the last seats in section 332 from the 3-7th innings. No nachos necessary, just wear your purple and cheer on @KFREE_21 and the help the boys win 3 in AZ! #letsggoo- Ryan Spilborghs (@spillygoat19) September 23, 2018
From a humble start of four loyal fans, the section grew to over 50 Rockies supporters over the course of the game:

And once that section was at full strength, they showed off some ... interesting dance moves.
Thanks to these fans -- and a masterful pitching performance from Kyle Freeland -- the Rockies completed the sweep with a 2-0 win. Hopefully these dance moves catch on for the team's final two series at Coors Field this week. There's no doubt it would help their pursuit of the postseason.
