DENVER (AP) - Marco Gonzales grew up rooting for the Colorado Rockies, even pitched at Coors Field a few times in his high school career.
Perhaps it's only fitting the St. Louis Cardinals left-hander will make his major league debut in familiar surroundings Wednesday.
His father, Frank Gonzales, is even flying in for the occasion, taking a break from his duties as a pitching coach for the Rockies' minor league team, the Tri-City Dust Devils.
Marco Gonzales, who's from up the road in Fort Collins, sat in the dugout on the eve of his first start and said, ''It's bizarre being here, sitting here in this dugout.''
