List Rules Please rank the players based only on their time with the Colorado Rockies.

This is a list of the greatest Colorado Rockies ever. Calling Denver its home, the Colorado Rockies have been bashing baseballs into the thin Rocky Mountain air since 1993. In the franchise's brief history, the Rockies have qualified for the National League playoffs three times with 2007 serving as the high water mark. Winning 21 of 22 games to make the playoffs, the Rockies' improbable run landed them a berth in its first World Series, but were swept by the Boston Red Sox. Not surprisingly, the greatest players in Rockies history are position players. Pitchers have a tough time at Coors Field due to the low air density at such a high elevation, which has allowed for hitters to thrive.

Todd Helton is known as one of the greatest Rockies of all time, having been with the franchise since his call up in 1997. Known as one of the steadiest hitters in the game, Helton consistently put up big numbers both at Coors Field and on the road. Helton is a five-time All Star, a three-time Silver Slugger winner and a three-time Golden Glove winner. His number 17 will surely be retired when his playing days finish. Though he didn't start his career in Colorado, Larry Walker is one of the greatest players to put on a Rockies uniform. Winning the National League MVP award in 1997, Walker hit .366 with 49 home runs, 130 RBI, 33 stolen bases, and 409 total bases. Additionally, Walker won three batting titles and was named to four All Star teams during his nine and a half seasons in Colorado.

Though the Colorado Rockies have only been around for two decades, they still have had a number of great players on its roster. Vote here on this list of the greatest Colorado Rockies of all time. If anyone is missing, feel free to add him to this list.
