6. Before the first pitch was thrown in front of 80,277 fans at the Rockies' 1993 opener, Travis Buckley had made news. That's because:
A. The retired United States Air Force general, who gave his name to Buckley Airfield, agreed to "drop" the first ball from an F-16.
B. The rowdy Golden teen was the first fan ever arrested for trespassing at a Rockies game: He was caught streaking across the outfield.
C. The promising pitcher was the first player acquired by the club in a trade.
D. The lucky fan waited two weeks to purchase the initial $1 seat in the Rockpile. He was given a season pass as a reward.
1. D. Hagin is thought to have watched all of the Rockies games -- good, bad and ugly alike -- from the start. No wonder he left.
2. B. The Rox retired No. 42 as a salute to Robinson's contributions, and that number now decorates the right-field wall in Coors Field. But the move wasn't all that momentous: No. 42 is retired across baseball.
3. C. Dante (burp!) swatted the horsehide for the cycle -- although it's believed he later celebrated with pounds of lasagna.
