Rockies pitch in for fire relief

The Colorado Rockies started collecting donations Friday to help fire relief efforts throughout the state with the help of owner Richard L. Monfort and pitcher Christian Friedrich.

There are multiple fires burning in the state, including the Waldo Canyon blaze near Colorado Springs. It is the most destructive in state history, burning more than 345 homes.

The Rockies have set up donation drops at every gate around Coors Field and pledged to match up to $50,000.
