Kiel Roling waves to the fans at Suplizio Field on Thursday night after receiving a plaque from the Grand Junction Rockies on Kiel Roling Night. Roling, a former Colorado Rockies minor league player and a Central High School graduate, also threw out the first pitch before the game.

A night to remember

Roling in ‘awe’ of honor from the Grand Junction Rockies

He signed autographs, threw out the first pitch and was recognized prior to the third inning of Thursday night’s Grand Junction Rockies game at Suplizio Field.
Kiel Roling always wondered what it would be like to get that kind of recognition and it was more than he imagined. VIDEO

“I’m in awe,” Roling said after receiving a plaque with his picture and an inscription prior to the game. “You see other people go through a situation like this. You always wonder what it would feel like.
“It almost brings me to tears out there, the support I got from friends and family. People around here can appreciate everything that’s happened. I really appreciate everyone that came out tonight.”
