ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The new Isotope season brought out Rockies fans, but also Dodger fans. The consensus has been mainly positive with the affiliation change from the Dodgers to the Rockies, but for some fans old habits are hard to break. There was still a good amount of fans sporting their blue and white and saying that they want the Dodgers back.
Others were more than excited with the Rockies affiliation with the Isotopes.
“Oh my god my prayers have been answered. God is bringing me what I want. I get to see the Rockies without driving to Denver. I grew up in Colorado and I am thrilled to see the farm team come here,” said Rockies super fan Peter Debeneditties.
For most though, just having a team to root for is what counts the most, because in all actuality a lot of these fans are strictly Isotopes fans.
“We have been coming to the Topes since the 80’s so to us as long as the Topes are here, we are here,” said Isotope fan Don Colvill.
The 6-year run of the Isotopes Dodger affiliation was a great one, but some fans are saying move over it’s the Rockies turn.
“I had a party at my house get the dodgers out of here it’s about time,” said Rockies fan Wylie.
The Isotopes lost their season opener 8-2 and they play their next game on Friday at 7:05 pm.
