Milwaukee County Executive David Crowley requests MLB bring 2021 All-Star Game to Milwaukee
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- County Executive David Crowley joined Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett in the effort to bring the 2021 Major League Baseball (MLB) All -Star Game to Milwaukee this summer.
In a letter sent to MLB Commissioner Robert Manfred, Jr. on Saturday, April 3, Crowley penned, "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 the 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."
The MLB announced Friday that this season's MLB's All-Star Game and MLB Draft would not be held in Atlanta in response to Georgia's recently passed laws that placed new restrictions on voting.
No comment on the status or future location of the MLB All-Star Game has been announced by the league.
