FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Abandoning Atlanta? How About Moving All-Star Game To Coop
FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Abandoning Atlanta? How About
Moving All-Star Game To Coop

Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred announced the league will move its 2021 All-Star Game and MLB Draft from Atlanta.

…MLB has yet to select an alternate host site, but might I suggest Cooperstown, NY?

Given the short-term logistics of finding a new site, it would have the quaint feeling like Iowa’s Field of Dreams. Plus, it’s the perfect place to honor Aaron and those Hall of Fame players who’ve died in the past year.

Given how there won’t be a big Hall of Fame bash this summer, move up the class of 2020 induction. That way Derek Jeter and his fellow inductees can get the proper spotlight too.

…It would be a cool and unique setting and a splendid way to honor the game’s greats with a Hall of Fame All-Star Game.
