Peyton Manning grateful to Rockies
DENVER -- Peyton Manning and Colorado Rockies first baseman Todd Helton were quarterbacks at the University of Tennessee in the mid '90s and the two have maintained their friendship over the years. So during last summer's NFL lockout, Helton helped arrange to have Manning work out at Coors Field.
A lot has happened since then. For one thing, Manning is now the quarterback for the Denver Broncos, not the Indianapolis Colts. For another thing, Michael Cuddyer has taken his locker.
