The Year in Pictures 2017: Victory

On Mother’s Day, rookie hurler Antonio Senzatela dedicated his start to his mother, Nidya Yusbelis Rondon, who lost a battle with breast cancer in July of 2016. Wearing an appropriate “pink” uniform, Senzatela gave the Rockies five strong innings and ultimately earned the win – for his mother, who never got the chance to see her son pitch in the majors.
