Last Friday, Major League Baseball plans to transfer its All-Star Game to Denver, after the league announced that it would withdraw from Atlanta to protest the state’s new restrictive voting law.
The league is scheduled to be announced on Tuesday, and the game scheduled for July 13 will be played at the Colorado Rockies’ Coors Field.
According to a report from Yahoo Finance, after Major League Baseball announced that it would start the game from Atlanta, Denver began lobbying to host the game.
The mayor of Denver, Michael Hancock, told the media that his city is “prepared to host”
Hancock told Yahoo Finance: “We are happy to welcome it and talk about Denver’s progressive voting system, which is to ensure that no one, no one is deprived of voting rights.”
“We show it, but more importantly, we can prove to Major League Baseball that we are ready and ready to host[All-StarG[theAll-StarG[全明星G[theAll-StarGIf they still choose us, it will be in July,” he added.
Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred announced in a statement on Friday that he decided to move the All-Star Game out of Atlanta, and wrote: “MLB fundamentally supports all Americans. The right to vote, against restrictions on the ballot box.”
Manfred said that this decision was made after talking to the team and players, and they found that moving the game out of Peach State is “the best way to show our values as a sport.”
