"I'm proof that not everybody can hit here," said Weiss, a shortstop for the Rockies in 1994-97. "I think that's a stigma that's going to be tough to break here. I think it was different early on. Much has been made of the humidor [where baseballs are stored to keep them from becoming slippery in the Rocky Mountain atmosphere], but I think it's been a factor.
"You look at the numbers, statistically it will show there's been a bit of a change. It's always going to be a great hitters' park, no doubt about it. There are other great hitters' parks in the NL that rarely get talked about."
