‘No bigger honor’: Rox to retire Walker’s No. 33

The Rockies announced on Friday that they will retire jersey number 33 in honor of iconic Rockies outfielder Larry Walker. The number retirement ceremony will take place on Sunday, April 19, prior to the Rockies’ 1:10 p.m. MT game against the St. Louis Cardinals, which will cap off a weekend

“There is no bigger honor an organization can give a player than retiring his number,” Walker said on Thursday. “Today, Dick Monfort called to say that they are going to retire #33! I can’t tell you how taken aback I am by this gesture. I am both thrilled and honored and I look forward to seeing my number hanging next to the greatest Rockie of all time, #17!”
