    The Colorado Rockies and Market Inefficiency in Major League Baseball by Grosenbaugh, Andrew J

    The Colorado Rockies play their home games in an environment unlike any other team in Major League Baseball. The altitude effect present in Denver, CO potentially plays a role in why hitters thrive for the Rockies and pitchers struggle. Player’s statistics are altered by playing in Denver, and these performance indicators’ significance diminishes, especially for Rockies players. Statistics are influential in determining player compensation in professional baseball. The statistics of Rockies players, however, are biased because they play 81 home games at high altitude each season. The results of this paper support the notion that the Rockies capitalize on their unique effect by paying players differently than the rest of the league.
