Mayor Barrett Letter to Commissioner Manfred Regarding the 2021 All Star Game
April 2, 2021
Commissioner Robert D. Manfred, Jr.
Major League Baseball
1271 Avenue of the Americas
New York, NY, 10020
I share your concerns about efforts to restrict voting rights in Georgia and elsewhere in the United States. And, I approve of your decision to relocate the 2021 All Star Game.
As you review alternative sites for the game, I ask you to consider Milwaukee. It is a particularly appropriate location to honor Hank Aaron who is a revered and beloved former Milwaukeean. He started and concluded his Major League career with teams here.
The City of Milwaukee would be honored to host the All Star Game, and you would have the full support of my office to make the festivities a success.
