(Colo.)-Rockies To Retire Helton's No. 17 Jersey

By: Andrew Lacy Posted at: 02/07/2014 10:52 AM
DENVER (AP) — The Colorado Rockies will retire former first baseman Todd Helton's No. 17 on Aug. 17.

The club announced its promotional schedule Thursday and it includes a three-day weekend honoring Helton, who retired at the end of last season.

Helton will be honored in a ceremony on Aug. 17 before the Rockies play the Cincinnati Reds.

Also, Root Sports announced former Rockies outfielder Ryan Spilborghs will join its Rockies broadcast team this season.

Spilborghs played a key role in the Rockies' 2007 World Series run and had considered resuming his career with the Rockies on a minor league contract this season before deciding to retire and go into broadcasting. He'll be a part of the team's pregame and postgame shows.
