Coors Field and the city of Denver will host the 2021 MLB All-Star Game if Gov. Jared Polis gets his wish.
The league announced earlier this week the game will be moved out of Atlanta due to a new law in Georgia that restricts voting rights.
On Friday night, The Athletic reported Coors Field and the Rockies were a candidate to host the game that is looking for a new city. 9NEWS reached out to Polis' office on Sunday night and received the following statement:
“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 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.”
