Rest and Ready in Remodeled Coors Clubhouse

SAN DIEGO -- Rockies right fielder Carlos Gonzalez learned last year that poor sleep can lead to trouble. Now he and his teammates will have a place for it when they arrive at Coors Field on Friday for the home opener against the Braves.

A gargantuan, Rocky Mountain-shaped scoreboard is the most visible of the renovations at Coors Field. But it's possible that another new feature -- a "quiet room," added off from the home clubhouse on the right-field side -- could help the Rockies put more runs on the massive board.

Gonzalez's struggles last season were partly attributed to such poor sleep that he began consulting with a Richmond, Va., specialist. A room with controlled lighting, a couple beds and some recliners is a worthwhile -- and science-based -- innovation.
