Cuddyer honors Killebrew with number choice

New Rockies outfielder Michael Cuddyer annoucned that he will wear No. 3 to honor a friend and former Twins great, the late Hall-of-Famer Harmon Killebrew. His introductory press conference at Coors Field starts soon.

Cuddyer wore No. 5 with the Twins, for whom he played 11 seasons.

“Strictly as a human being, he’s one of the greatest human beings I’ve ever come in contact with,” Cuddyer said. “One of the first things I did was look at the roster, see if 3 was available and ask for it. I’m very happy to get it.”


Hi,I am trying to figure out when opening day 2012 is. Is it April 9,2012???

Rockies open at Houston on April 6 and at home against the Giants on April 9.
Here is a regular-season schedule. Thanks for the question.
