In the early 1990s, the state of Colorado received a Major League Baseball team of its own. The Rockies have been well-known since the team’s inception for boasting high-powered offenses and high-scoring affairs thanks in large part to the hitter-friendly confines of Coors Field. But, have any of those lineups been able to power the Rockies to any World Series titles? Here’s an answer to that question.
Colorado Rockies World Series history
Despite entering MLB in the same year as the Miami Marlins — who have won two since 1997 — the Colorado Rockies has never won any World Series titles since the team was founded in 1993.
Colorado did achieve some early success in franchise history. The Rockies made the MLB Playoffs in the team’s third season. The 1995 Rockies featured a powerful lineup led by Larry Walker, Dante Bichette, Vinny Castilla, and Andres Galarraga. Colorado won 77 games in a shortened 1995 season to clinch a playoff birth but would lose in the NLDS to the eventual World Series champion Atlanta Braves.
The Rockies’ next playoff birth would come twelve years later in 2007, a season that would turn into the team’s first World Series appearance. Matt Holliday, Todd Helton, and Troy Tulowitzki would lead Colorado back into the MLB Playoffs, and Colorado would beat the Philadelphia Phillies (NLDS) and Arizona Diamondbacks (NLCS) to make it to the Fall Classic.
Colorado would return to the MLB Playoffs in 2009, 2017, and 2018. The Rockies failed to make it past the NLDS in each of the squad’s next three appearances.
