Rockies hit ads out of the park

By Troy Hooper

The Colorado Rockies aren't just talented baseball players. They display some acting chops too.

Each season the team rolls out a series of commercials that are clever and comical. There has been the spoof on Matt Holliday's infamous did-he-or-didn't-he chin-scraping slide across home plate a few years back, Ryan Spilborghs' staring contest with Dinger, former closer Brian Fuentes saving a cat from a tree and many other hard-to-forget ads that have left fans' bellies aching.

This year is no different.

Spring training has only just begun but Real Vail already has tracked down a half dozen of the team's 32-second promotional skits that will soon be gracing your TV sets.

One of the funniest, however, doesn't feature any Colorado players at all. Instead it explains how every time a fan's wife gets pregnant, the Rockies make the playoffs:

Then there's this gem about shortstop Troy Tulowitzki's difficulties getting through airport security:

This one features a Rockies crew lecturing an overzealous fan for starting the wave at the wrong moment of a game:

Superstitions running rampant in the clubhouse:

Ubaldo Jiminez's nasty stuff:

There are dinner dates and then there are Dinger dates:

Enjoy these videos. The season officially gets under way April 1. No fooling.
