It didn't take Major League Baseball long to find a new site for its midsummer showcase. The 2021 MLB All-Star Game is expected to be played at Denver’s Coors Field, according to multiple reports

Truist Park, home of the Atlanta Braves, was scheduled to host the All-Star Game until the league announced Friday that the contest would be relocated. Atlanta lost both the All-Star Game and this year’s MLB Draft because of Georgia's new voting law.

Many Democrats, including President Joe Biden, have argued that the law will make it more difficult for Georgians to vote. 

MLB has not made an official announcement yet regarding a new venue for the All-Star Game. Shortly after Commissioner Rob Manfred said the game would be moved, Coors Field was named as a potential destination for the game.

“The Governor knows that Colorado is the best home for the All-Star Game, especially because Colorado also has strong laws that enable voters to cast their legal ballots any way they choose including through mail or in person,” the office of Colorado Gov. Jared Polis said in a statement on Sunday. “The Governor will be burning up the phones the next few days to see if there is an opening to bring the All-Star game to Denver.” 

The MLB All-Star Game is scheduled for Tuesday, July 13. The Home Run Derby is traditionally held the Monday before the All-Star Game at the same stadium.

Coors Field, where the Colorado Rockies play their home games, hosted the 1998 All-Star Game. The American League beat the National League 13-8 in the highest-scoring All-Star Game ever.

There was no 2020 MLB All-Star Game because of the pandemic.
