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.

Don't think I've watched an MLB game since 2015. Guess I won't start watching any soon.

The same league that took away a world series, and rode steroids to popularity, is now going to punish states for passing voting legislation it doesn't like.



MLB can't go bankrupt fast enough.

I bet if there was a $500 check waiting for people at the ballot box after they voted, they'd somehow managed to crack the riddle of how to get from point A to B.

Punishing a team for a law made by the legislature and the team did not come out with enough madness.

The state should pull all perks that it currently gives to the Braves and MLB.

Wokeness is a plaque. It consumes everything we love. You can't escape it.

This is the main reason I'm moving to a rural red state area in the woods, load up on guns for hunting, and cut off all electronic devices. Maybe have a rotary phone. That's the way to live.
