Did you ever dream of seeing a major league baseball field from the dugout like a player waiting to bat, or standing on the warning track like an outfielder about to steal a home run?  Join us to make those dreams come true.  Attendees will tour Coors Field, home of the Colorado Rockies, and see the unique aspects of the stadium – including the row of seats that are exactly a mile high and the humidor used to keep the balls from drying out in Colorado’s climate.  Following the tour, we’ll dine on ultimate versions of ballpark favorites while enjoying the view of the Rocky Mountains. 

This event is open to all attendees and benefits  NTCA Rural Broadband PAC  administrative fund, the Rural Telecommunications Administrative Fund (RTAF) and NTCA advocacy efforts.
