Denver Baseball



Unfortunately there are none that I am aware of.

It'd be great to hear him again. They used to recreate games using wire reports for road games when they could not afford the travel and telephone line charges, with sound effects of a batted ball, crowd noise etc.


Is there anyway where I can find rosters of those old teams that played in Merchant Park? Had a great uncle born in 1908 who played. Not sure which years?


Your best - and perhaps only option would be- the Denver newspapers and a day by day search during the baseball season. We have the full runs of the Rocky Mountain News and Denver Post on microfilm, along with other papers that had shorter lifespans like the Denver Republican and Denver Times.

There is also an organization called Society for American Baseball Research which has a chapter in Denver. Their web site is and they have researchers that would be able to help you locate other sources of information. They even have special interest groups that specialize in minor league players. These are the folks that the term "sabermetrics" was created for. There are individuals in SABR who have encyclopedic knowledge of all things baseball.


They are very cool! Make sure you find that box so someone doesn't toss it out not realizing it has historical significance .
