Major League Baseball’s All-Star game has been relocated to Coors Field in Denver, ESPN reported Monday night.

Sources told ESPN that the new location had been selected after MLB announced earlier this month that it would no longer hold its originally scheduled July 13 game at Atlanta’s Truist Park over a restrictive new voting legislation that was signed in to law last month. 

The Denver Post also confirmed the news.

Commissioner Rob Manfred said in a statement at the time that he discussed the potential move with major league players before ultimately deciding to pull the game from Atlanta “as the best way to demonstrate our values as a sport.”

According to ESPN, the game’s relocation will mark the second time the home of the Colorado Rockies will host the Midsummer Classic.
