The Rockies organization was set to have a press conference at 4:00 today to discuss what happened this morning and when fans could expect the ticketing website to be back online and ready for sales. That time was pushed back to 5:00, then 6:00, and it just happened.
Basically, the Rockies spokesman apologized for the problem, stating that their system was overwhelmed this morning, and they hope to have more information before the 10:00 news broadcast.
There were a number of irate people in the audience and one got rowdy, asking why this wasn’t anticipated, as I agree it should have been; no more explanations were offered by the spokesman who apologized again and left. Perhaps we’ll know more later tonight, but I can’t see how tickets would be sold before tomorrow morning at the earliest at this hour.
