GRAND JUNCTION — Grand Junction will soon be home to a Colorado Rockies’ farm club.

The Grand Junction Rockies will begin play in 2012 at Suplizio Field after the city council approved a 15-year lease with stadium owners late Monday. The Pioneer League team will move from Casper, Wyo., where it’s known as the Casper Ghosts.

The Monfort Investment Group, headed by Colorado Rockies general partners Charlie and Dick Monfort, bought the team in January.

Dick Monfort says the Rockies are excited to be bringing the team to the Western Slope.
