Albuquerque Dukes

This is the only photo I have of the Albuquerque Dukes at the old Albuquerque Sports Stadium.

That's Crazy George, mascot-for-hire. He was good at getting the crowds pumped up. At the old Colorado Rockies NHL games in Denver he would have the fans in different sections stand up and yell "Go!" "Fight!" "Win!" "Rockies!". This is believed to have inspired "The Wave", although Seattle Seahawks fans also claim credit (or blame, depending on your point of view) for that exercise.

Check out the Albuquerque Isotopes pages in my archive:
May '03 vs. Sky Sox April '07 vs. Zephyrs

The Isotopes have a nice page of Albuquerque Baseball History.

Rockies vs. Cubs
Eric Young Rockies at Mile High Stadium

The Colorado Rockies played their first two seasons at the old Mile High Stadium.

EY's catch made "Plays Of The Week" on ESPN.
