Major League Baseball has just announced it’s moving it’s All-Star Game out of the state of Georgia over their new election law:
NY POST – MLB is taking its ball and leaving Georgia.
The league announced on Friday that it is moving the All-Star Game out of Atlanta as backlash grows over a new Georgia law that is seen as an attack on voter access.
“I have determined the best way to demonstrate our value as a sport is relocating this year’s All-Star Game and MLB Draft,” commissioner Rob Manfred said in a statement.
“MLB fundamentally supports voting rights for all Americans and opposes restrictions to the ballot box.”
They aren’t just moving their All-Star Game, but they are also pulling the draft:
This is major news from @MLB. They are relocating this year’s All-Star Game and Draft set to take place in Atlanta due to the passing of new GA voter law.

This is unbelievable. The new Georgia law is fantastic, but these libs would rather believe Joe Biden’s lies about the bill than read it for themselves, which I’d bet money hasn’t happened.
I’m glad that I’m not a baseball fan because I’d be dumping the MLB and boycotting all the games after this nonsense. They clearly don’t respect the American voter, so to hell with them.
