Tom Del Beccaro on the MLB All-Star Game controversy
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Major League Baseball has declared intention to relocate the 2021 All-Star Game and MLB Draft — which was slated to take place in Atlanta — to a different location that has not yet been disclosed.
This decision comes on the heels of S. B. 202 passing in Georgia, a law that has been criticized as restricting voting access for Georgians.
Commissioner Rob Manfred commented that the decision to move the All-Star Game was “the best way to demonstrate our values as a sport” and was deliberated on by teams, former and current players, the MLB Players Association and The Players Alliance, as well as others.
