Moments worth framing
The Rockies honored first baseman Todd Helton on Monday for achieving his 2,000th career hit on the road at Atlanta. The club played a tribute of his various milestone hits, including his home run against the Dodgers in 2007 that seemed to make the Rockies believe that their late-season playoff run was possible.
With owners Charlie and Dick Monfort, club president Keli McGregor, general manager Dan O’Dowd and manager Clint Hurdle at his side, Helton received a framed presentation. It consisted of photos of his swing at various points of his career, and the Denver Post article the day after he reached the milestone.
