MLB moves All-Star Game out of Atlanta Braves' stadium due to Georgia's voter restriction law
Yahoo Sports ^ | April 2nd, 2021 | Nick Bromberg

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’?

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.

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.

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.
