This image of Citzens Bank Park was published in the Denver Post under an article that was supposed to be a guide to Coors Field.
The Denver Post has been charged with an error.
The Colorado newspaper is apologizing after it published a guide to the Rockies’ Coors Field on Friday that featured a cover photo of Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, the home of the Phillies.

Shortly after news of the error started to spread, the Denver Post released a statement addressing the blunder.
“Due to a production error, an image of Citizens Bank Park ran in place of Coors Field on the cover of today’s Life & Culture section. Please enjoy this beautiful image of Coors Field photographed yesterday. The Denver Post sincerely regrets the errors,” the tweet read.

Of course, this didn’t stop the internet from having some fun with the gaffe.
The Phillies’ official Twitter account teased the Post by using a Rockies tweet showing Coors Field.
What a lovely photo of Citizens Bank Park.Right, @denverpost? 😉 https://t.co/CHV1mC4Gr2

“What a lovely photo of Citizens Bank Park. Right @denverpost,” the tweet read along with a winky face emoji.
Others also joined in on the mockery.
The Rockies will play their first home game of the 2018 season Friday afternoon against the Atlanta Braves.
