Coors Field to host 2021 MLB All-Star Game, sources say

He cited the MLB's decision to move the organization's All-Star game and draft in Atlanta in response to Georgia's restrictive voting law.

"Major League Baseball is grateful to the Rockies, the City of Denver and the State of Colorado for their support of this summer's All-Star Game", Manfred said in a written statement.

Acceptable forms of identification include a valid Colorado's driver's license or valid ID card issued by the Department of Revenue, a valid USA passport, a copy of a recent utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, or other government documents.

He and others pointed out that Georgia offers voters 17 days of in-person early voting, while Colorado has only 15 of those in-person days.

When voting absentee in Colorado, voters only need to provide identification for the first time they cast an absentee ballot.

Kemp and others also have said that Colorado requires photo identification to vote, which is false. But the vast majority of Coloradans don't need to show an ID in order to vote; a year ago, more than 94% of Colorado voters cast their ballots by returning them through the mail or in drop boxes, according to election-night data from the Colorado Secretary of State's office.

While Georgia requires identification for all in-person and absentee voting, Colorado law requires identification for in-person voting and first-time mail-in voters may be required to include a copy of their ID with their ballot. The state uses signature matching to verify a voter's absentee ballots in subsequent elections.

But in the very next sentence, the Review confusingly added: "Like Colorado, Georgia allows voters without ID to use the last four digits of their Social Security number, a bank statement or utility bill, a paycheck, or any other government document with their name and address".

Major League Baseball had pulled the game from Atlanta in response to criticism of Georgia's new voting law.

Colorado, the new home of MLB's 2021 All-Star Game, saw more than 21,000 ballots disqualified in 2016 over voter-identification issues, according to a report. "It would be good for baseball and good for Colorado".

A Georgia tourism official told CNN on Friday that MLB's decision to move its All-Star Game out of Georgia could have a $100 million economic impact on the state.
