Colorado Rockies staff — including owner Dick Monfort and dinosaur mascot Dinger — shovel snow from Coors Field

Big League Stew

Have you ever seen a triceratops with no pants shovel snow off a baseball field? Now you have, thanks to Marc Carig, the New York Mets beat reporter for Newsday. The Colorado Rockies and New York Mets are trying to play a doubleheader at Coors Field on Tuesday after the game Monday was postponed because of snow. But the players would never see the field if it doesn't get cleared first.

So, it appeared that everyone in the front office grabbed a shovel, from Dinger the team mascot to team owner Dick Monfort:

You have to appreciate a hands-on owner like Monfort. My only objection with Dinger is the usual one. Please wear something below the waist for once.

Update: Mets GM Sandy Alderson, a former Marine, also reportedly grabbed a snow shovel to help the clearing effort. I don't think Mr. Met made the trip, though.
