2021 MLB All-Star Game coming to Coors Field, source says

Source: Denver Post

The 2021 MLB All-Star Game is coming to Colorado, a league source confirmed Monday night.

Just days after Major League Baseball decided to move the game out of Atlanta, the source says MLB is expected to officially announce Tuesday morning that the July 13 game will be moved to Denver’s Coors Field.

“We are excited about the possibility of hosting the All-Star Game and are awaiting MLB’s decision,” Denver Mayor Michael Hancock said in a statement released to The Denver Post on Monday night.

Gov. Jared Polis echoed Hancock’s hopeful statements when contacted by The Post.

2. I got involved in Dem politics in Fremont County

in 2004. Helped get Pat Waak elected party chair. I feel like I played a part in turning Colorado blue.

9. I really was just in the right place at the right time

I'd retired from a Fed job a couple years earlier and moved to Fremont County, and decided to get in touch with the Dems and get into politics. I was made precinct captain, and was with the delegation that went to the 2004 state convention (my first one). At the convention, one of our members, a lawyer, was working to oust the current Party Chair and they were considered to be insurgents against the current Party leadership. I think the then Party Chair was named Gates, if memory serves. The leaders were a very DINO bunch and the party had not been doing well in state elections...the only Dem senator had just switched to Rep, the Reps held most of the house seats, and the Governor, and most statewide offices.

I'd traveled a lot in the state, had some friends around there, and ran around the convention floor trying to solicit votes for Waak from the smaller counties, and was pretty successful at getting some of them to see that change was necessary. When the vote finally came the counties I'd visited went for Pat Waak, and she won by just a few votes. The lawyer then found out that a Party rule required that if the Chair was female, the Vice-Chair had to be male, which opened that job up for him, and he got it. Under Pat's leadership the state went from pretty solid red to very purple, and trend that continues to this day. Part of it was demographics, lots of young people moving to the state, but a lot was Pat's outreach to the county parties all over the state. Our guy being Vice-Chair was why the National convention was held in Denver in 2008.

For all that, we never made much of an inroad into Fremont County politics...it's still as Red as ever. We got to where we were losing by a few percentage points, but never made it over the top. Now they're lucky to get to 40%. I move away in 2013, but stay in touch. Anyhow, I felt like what I did helped in a small way and got the ball rolling the correct direction.
