BRONCOS TO HONOR COLORADO ROCKIES GREAT TODD HELTON ON SUNDAY

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Former Colorado Rockies first baseman Todd Helton, who retired last month after a 17-year career in the major leagues, will serve as an honorary captain on Sunday when the Denver Broncos host the Jacksonville Jaguars (2:05 p.m. MDT kickoff).

The Broncos will honor Helton and his illustrious career with a pregame video tribute shortly before kickoff. Helton will also accompany the Broncos’ captains—including former University of Tennessee football teammate and good friend Peyton Manning—to midfield for the pregame coin toss.

Helton finished his career batting .316 with 2,519 hits, 1,406 RBIs, 369 home runs and 592 doubles. He was a five-time National League All-Star, a four-time Silver Slugger winner and a three-time NL Gold Glove recipient.

Selected by the Rockies with the eighth overall pick in the 1995 June Draft out of Tennessee, Helton went on to become the franchise’s statistical leader in nearly every offensive category.

His 17-year career with the Rockies—one more season than quarterback John Elway played for the Broncos—represents the longest tenure by a player in Colorado pro sports history.
