The MLB has not responded to CNN’s request for comment.
Political leaders in the state expressed enthusiasm about potentially hosting the game.
“We are excited about the possibility of hosting the All-Star Game and are awaiting MLB’s decision,” Denver Mayor Michael Hancock said.
Gov. Jared Polis echoed the mayor’s excitement.
“Like so many Coloradans, I’m excited and hopeful that Major League Baseball makes the best decision and formally chooses to play the 2021 All-Star game in Denver,” he said in a statement. “It would be good for baseball and good for Colorado.”
“Unfortunately, businesses, employees, and fans in Georgia are victims of this decision,” the statement read.
Despite backlash surrounding the law, members of the Republican party have stood their ground.
“Major League Baseball caved to fear, political opportunism, and liberal lies,” Kemp said Friday. “Georgians – and all Americans – should fully understand what the MLB’s knee-jerk decision means: cancel culture and woke political activists are coming for every aspect of your life, sports included. If the left doesn’t agree with you, facts and the truth do not matter.”
