DENVER (AP) - Former Colorado Rockies All-Star Dante Bichette returned to Coors Field on Monday on the 15th anniversary of his game-winning home run on Opening Day 1995.
Bichette was an original member of the Rockies organization and made four All-Star Game appearances during his seven-plus seasons with the team. He hit the first home in franchise history, April 7, 1993, in New York against the Mets.
His most memorable home run came against the Mets two years later. Bichette hit a three-run homer in the bottom of the 14th inning in the first game played at Coors Field.
Bichette hit .299 with 274 home runs and 1,114 RBIs in 14 major league seasons.
