Thank you Todd Helton

As Todd Helton plays his last game at Coors Field, I feel compelled to write this.
I’m a big baseball fan, I admit it. I didn’t really start paying attention to baseball until 2007, when the Rockies went to the playoffs. That whole year I kept saying that they were going to win the pennant, which they did. I only wish I had said that they’d win the World Series.
One of the reasons I became a baseball fan was watching Todd Helton play, he’s always given it his all, playing as hard as he could, even while the rest of the team would lose hope and give up, Todd Helton never did, he’s a true baseball player.
We here in Colorado have been lucky to have him play here for 17 years. In my mind he is one of the last true baseball players, caring more about the game and the Rockies than the money, he could have gone to another team, but instead he stayed, giving up the chance to go back to the playoffs, all because he felt that he owed the Rockies and Colorado his full career.
We’ve been very lucky to have the opportunity to watch him play over the years.
Thank you Todd Helton, you’ll be missed.
