Colorado Rockies To Have Tribute To Jerry McMorris On Wednesday Night

The Colorado Rockies are back home on Wednesday night and will have a tribute to former owner Jerry McMorris, who died last week, before the team plays the Arizona Diamondbacks. The tribute will include a video and a moment of silence, the team announced:

McMorris died on May 8, 2012, following a battle with pancreatic cancer. He saved baseball in Colorado when he provided the funding to keep the franchise afloat before Major League Baseball would have needed to end operations there.
