It's a good thing the Colorado Rockies are not playing Monday and are on their way to Missouri for a series against the Kansas City Royals starting tomorrow. The Rockies home ballpark, Coors Field, has been covered in snow and ice. The club's Twitter accout sent out this photo (hey, shouldn't they get the tarp on the field?), and left-hander Brett Anderson chimed in, too:

The predicted high for Kansas City on Tuesday is 66 degrees with little chance of rain, so Kauffman Stadium should be snow-free for the start of a two-game interleague set. Just 13 months ago, The Stew reported the Rockies staff (including ownership and mascots) shoveling snow off the field so the team could play a doubleheader.
The average high for Denver, Colo. on May 12 is 70 degrees, and the average low is 41 — so this isn't normal, but it happens, and perhaps with Al Gore's diabolical climate change occurring globally, it will happen more often in the future. At least this weather is relatively harmless, if a little annoying.
The Rockies timed their escape to luscious K.C. at the perfect moment. Good job, MLB schedulemaker!
