Major League Baseball announced Friday afternoon that the game would be moving out of the Atlanta Braves' Truist Park because of the state's new law that restricts voting rights. The MLB draft is also being moved out of Georgia.
Commissioner Rob Manfred said in a statement that "the best way to demonstrate our values as a sport is by relocating this year's All-Star Game and MLB draft."
You can read Manfred's statement in its entirety below. No replacement location was immediately announced.

No, it'd be moving the team out of Georgia, or denying the World Series being there should the Braves make it there, but obviously that southeast money is too much.
This stupid little exhibition game is nothing. It's laughable grandstanding and virtue signaling.
MLB was already dead to me. This just reinforces it.
Want to bet the players will take a knee before the start of the game, for ‘racial justice’?
Everything the left touches turns to sh!t.
This is flippin stupid!!!!!!
Remove all tax breaks that the NBA is receiving from Georgia.
They’re not hurting anyone but the fans, if there’s any actually left.
Good take it St Paul, and take Delta and American Airlines with you.
Yep. All part of their plan.
Thanks for the memories MLB. It’s over for me.
To hell with MLB and Delta Airlines and American Airlines too. I can live easily without them.
Darn. After missing it the last 58 years I was pumped to watch this year.
Nobody even watches sports anymore thanks to Covid, so BFD. And the new law doesn’t restrict voting in any way if you’re actually a legit GA resident who is also eligible to vote, that is. What dumbasses.
Yep. Professional sports represents competition, teamwork, and unity. Can’t have black and white players working together.
I’ve been done with professional sports for a long time now but I’m beyond hating their guts now.
Is anyone even going to notice?
The cancelled an exhibition game? Big deal. They need to prove they’re serious and pull the Braves out for the entire season.
I’ve never been into professional sports. Sports should be nothing more than a community activity that you get together with community picnics.
