Commissioner Robert D. Manfred, Jr.
Major League Baseball
1271 Avenue of the Americas
New York, NY, 10020

Dear Commissioner,

I commend Major League Baseball’s decision to relocate the 2021 All-Star Game in response to the efforts to restrict voting rights in the state of Georgia.

I join the Mayor Tom Barrett in asking you to consider choosing the City of Milwaukee as the new location for this year’s All-Star Game. Milwaukee would serve as an appropriate location to honor life and legacy of the late Hank Aaron. He started and ended his career in Milwaukee and used his career as a platform to champion civil rights.

On behalf of Milwaukee County, and the many local leaders here dedicated to the protection of civil rights and achieving racial equity, we would be honored to host the 2021 All-Star Game and pay homage to the memory a beloved Milwaukeean.

Sincerely,

David Crowley
County Executive
