It’s Todd Helton’s Final Home Game, And The Rockies Gave Him A Horse


Seeing that the umpires are relaxing the rules on home run trots, the least they could do was let Todd Helton ride his horse around the bases tonight when he hit his final home run at Coors Field (probably). Alas, they did not. So he hit career homer No. 368 and had to walk it.

Yep, before the game, this happened:

The horse was inserted as a pinch runner in the bottom of the eighth.

Do not be jealous of Todd Helton’s presents, A-Rod!
