All-Star MLB game returning to Atlanta for first time in over 20 years
ATLANTA - SunTrust Park and the Atlanta Braves will play host to the 2021 All-Star Game following an official announcement on Wednesday.
It will also follow another unusual trend for Atlanta - each time it's come to the Peach State, the game has been hosted in a different stadium. The first time was in 1972 in Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium. It would be decades before it returned in 2000, where the teams would play in Turner Field (present-day Georgia State Stadium).
