Jim Thome, Todd Helton, Albert Belle, Nolan Arenado … the list of great players to wear a Sky Sox uniform is a long one, but we’ve made an effort to condense it for you.

On Tuesday, Colorado Springs will begin its 31st and final season as a Triple-A team (first pitch at 6:30 p.m.). Next year it will compete as a short-season Rookie-level team. To honor the history of the team in the city we have compiled a list of the 31 most memorable players to have appeared with the team, along with a few other lists of superlatives.

Take a quick trip down memory lane with names like Charlie Blackmon, Neifi Perez and Joe Koshansky as we recall a significant piece of sports history in the Pikes Peak region.
