Denver Post uses photo of Citizens Bank Park for cover on Rockies home opener

The Philadelphia Phillies shut out the Miami Marlins, 5-0, in the 2018 home opener at Citizens Bank Park on Thursday, April 5. This is a panoramic from the first inning.

I was at Thursday's Phillies home opener at Citizens Bank Park, and let me tell you, it was cold! Skin-cracking winds sent a chill over the stands. It was almost as if the game wasn't being played in Philadelphia, but instead in — hmm, I don't know, the Rocky Mountains?

Wait, how can we be sure the game wasn't actually in the Western mountain range? After all, according to the cover of Friday's life & culture section in The Denver Post, Citizens Bank Park is actually Coors Field, home of the Colorado Rockies.

The cover featured a large photo of the Bank for a preview of the Rockies' home opener Friday.

Of course, this was a mistake. The newspaper issued a correction on Twitter, crediting the miscue to a "production error."
