Righty swinging 3B Vinny Casilla was a product of Coors Field during the live ball era. He hit over 30 homers six times in his major league career (all with Colorado), he knocked in over 100 runs five times in his career (all with the Rockies) and he hit over .300 five times (all with the Rockies). Castilla played in 1,098 games in his 9 years with the Rockies and he was 1,206 of 4,099 (.294 avg, .870 OPS) with 611 runs scored, 239 homers, 745 RBIs and 22 stolen bases. Castilla is all over the record books of the Colorado Rockies. He is #3 in Rockies’ history in games played (1,098). He also is #4 in hits (1,206), #4 in runs scored (611), #4 in doubles (208), tied for #10 in triples (20), #3 in homers (239), #4 in RBIs (745) and he’s #6 in walks (273) in Rockies’ history. Castilla was awesome for the Rockies, but not so much for any other team. In Castilla’s seven seasons not spent in Colorado, he played in 756 games in which he was 678 of 2,723 (.249 avg) with 291 runs scored, 81 homers, 360 RBIs and 11 stolen bases.
