Todd Helton brought the crowd at
Helton, a career .316 hitter, retired after last season following a 17-year career, all with the Rockies. He is the first player in the team's 22-year history to have his number retired.
With his wife and two daughters looking on and in front of a full house that included many in the crowd wearing vintage Helton jerseys, the five-time All-Star thanked the city, fans, former teammates and his family for their support, and Rockies ownership for giving him his chance.
