Rockies to play intrasquad game Friday
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- After rain forced the Rockies to work out indoors and in batting cages Wednesday, and an icy, snowy slush kept them off the field Thursday, the Rockies plan on having an intrasquad game Friday at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick.
The game will start at 2:30 p.m. MT on Field 3, which is one of the practice fields to the right-field side of the stadium complex. There is no admission charge.
Manager Walt Weiss said mostly prospects will play in the game, although Manny Corpas, the closer from the 2007 National League champion Rockies who is back with the team as a non-roster invitee, is scheduled to pitch. The managers will be Glenallen Hill of Triple-A Colorado Springs and Kevin Riggs of Double-A Tulsa.
