 DENVER (AP) - Baseball's hottest teams played in Coors Field's coldest weather.
The temperature was 23 degrees Tuesday for the start of a day-night doubleheader began between the Atlanta Braves and Colorado Rockies. That shattered the previous low of 28 for games against Montreal on April 12, 1997, and versus the New York Mets last Thursday.
Ground crews began working at around 6 a.m. to clear several inches of snow from the playing surface at Coors Field, which opened in 1995. While there was no sign of snow on the field when the game started, some parts of the ballpark remained closed, including the snow-filled Rockpile section in center.
Colorado and Atlanta each began the day at 13-5, tied for the best record in the major leagues.
