DENVER (AP) - Colorado Rockies owner Dick Monfort is among the grounds crew shoveling snow in the hope his team will squeeze in a doubleheader against the New York Mets on Tuesday.
Nearly an hour before first pitch at 3:10 p.m. EDT, the crew had hauled off a majority of the eight inches of snow that covered the outfield grass. There were still mounds stacked up in front of the dugouts.
The temperature at first pitch for the afternoon game will be around 38 degrees, making this one of the top-10 coldest games at Coors Field. The record is 28 degrees on April 12, 1997, against Montreal.
Monfort says between scoops of snow that ``everybody is trying to make this game happen.''
The night game is set for 8:40 p.m.
