The Atlanta Braves are not happy with the decision that the MLB commissioner made, moving the All-Star Game out of Atlanta over the new Georgia election law, and they want you to know about it:

In case you can’t see the tweet, here’s what it says:
The Atlanta Braves are deeply disappointed by the decision of Major League Baseball to move its’ 2021 All Star Game.
This was neither our decision, nor our recommendation and we are saddened that fans will not be able to see this event in our city. The Braves organization will continue to stress the importance of equal voting opportunities and we had hoped our city could use this event as a platform to enhance the discussion. Our city has always been known as a uniter in divided times and we will miss the opportunity to address issues that are important to our community.
Unfortunately, businesses, employees and fans in Georgia are the victims of this decision.
We will continue to support the community legacy projects which have been planned and are in process.
Wow. I’m glad the team took a stand against the MLB on this, however they really didn’t say much about the Georgia election law. But to be honest, that doesn’t bother me. I wish MLB had taken the same tactic and stayed out of it, but they decided to get woke and spread misinformation and lies about the new law and then punish the state with a boycott.
So I’ll take the Braves pushing back – whatever I can get – and will definitely root for them in the playoffs this year if they make it.
