ROSTERS AND TEAM NAMES ANNOUNCED
The first pitch of 2013 Rockies Fantasy Camp was just thrown. There are two matchups on tonight’s slate of games, but before Camp arrived at this point, players participated in pitching, hitting and fielding sessions after lunch.

Dante’s Dudes (Dante Bichette/Jeff Huson) – Bob Banta, Joe Breda, Chris Bunnell, Rob Clark, Brian Everhart, Josh Fetters, Sandy Friedin, Marty Marcely, PJ Marcely, Bret Milner, Sam Rubinson, Stefan Tubbs
Vinny’s Cousins (Vinny Castilla/Rick Mathews) – Steve Bahmer, Mike Bush, Mike Chaney, Bob Cooley, Robbie Dinges, Steve Foster, Virgil Graff, Brian Hastings, Art Jacobson, Doug Jones, Tom Sanders, Joe Stutesman
