MLB moving All-Star Game from Atlanta over Georgia voting law

Major League Baseball is moving the 2021 All-Star Game and 2021 draft out of Atlanta in response to a new Georgia voting law that critics say unfairly limits access to the ballot box, especially for people of color.

"Over the last week, we have engaged in thoughtful conversations with Clubs, former and current players, the Players Association, and The Players Alliance, among others, to listen to their views," MLB commissioner Rob Manfred said in a statement. "I have decided that the best way to demonstrate our values as a sport is by relocating this year's All-Star Game and MLB Draft."

The decision follows calls from as the White House to consider moving the midsummer classic out of Atlanta.

In his statement, Manfred said MLB "fundamentally supports voting rights for all Americans and opposes restrictions to the ballot box." Manfred said MLB would continue to celebrate the memory of Hank Aaron, who died in January, during the All-Star festivities.

No new site for the All-Star Game or draft were announced.

Atlanta losing the All-Star Game is all based on Democrat lies.

When they leave the house they might not be expecting a several-hours long wait?

Some have claimed poll workers are allowed to provide, but I don't see that in the law. I could be wrong, but no one has pointed to the language allowing it.

So, it's not really poll workers providing water as some have claimed.
And if the place has no water fountain (and it's likely they don't until you get inside), too bad.

The bigger point here is that it is just a petty act to include this and shows the true intent--create long waits and make it as uncomfortable as possible to vote (in some areas).

/that this is actual advice is just sad. But, then again, conservatives will never care about multi hour long waits to vote as long as it keeps "those" people from voting.
I agree, to bad they didn't extend early voting so people could avoid any potential wait at the polls... ****ERS...

This makes me laugh... Let's imagine another America, you know, where Biden lost by 60,000 votes in 4 swing states and Trump is still President... It would be all rainbows and Unicorns, right? :-) They would still be trying to put out some of the fires... GTFO with this bullshit

If anyone believes Biden got 13 million more votes than Obama did in 2008, then I have a used and decrepit bridge to sell them at an inflated price too.

Given the past results, maybe they should?

Cpdc: I dunno, whatís the problem?

You guys are just willfully stupid.
Avg high temp for November in Georgia is mid 60's. Imagine having to stand in line outside in mid 60 degree weather. The humanity of it. WON'T SOMEONE THINK OF THE PEOPLE!

Try going to the ticket window to pick up pre paid tickets without an ID.
