Kendrick: D-Backs ‘Absolutely Would Not’ Pursue 2021 All-Star Game Bid

The Arizona Diamondbacks will not be throwing their name in the hat for the relocated 2021 All-Star Game.

D-backs owner Ken Kendrick squashed the notion of the team potentially hosting this year’s event while on with Arizona Sports’ Burns & Gambo on Monday, calling the relocation of the game from the Atlanta Braves’ Truist Park a sad state of affairs.

“No, we absolutely would not [pursue the All-Star Game],” Kendrick said. “We hosted one in 2011, we’re proud that we were able to do that but I view it as it would be an insult to my friends at the Atlanta Braves for us to take the game that was theirs.”
