Rockies visit shooting victims at Aurora hospital
Rockies players, coaches and staff spent their off-day Thursday visiting victims of last weekend's shooting in Aurora, Colo., at the University of Colorado Hospital.
Manager Jim Tracy joined a group of 12 players, including Michael Cuddyer, Todd Helton, Jordan Pacheco and Josh Rutledge, for the visit.

Many players opened up about their experience on Twitter, but perhaps Eric Young put it best.
Blessed to be in my position, but the heroes are the staffs that work at hospitals saving lives. I have a better understanding of that 2day.— Eric Young Jr (@EYJr) July 26, 2012
