The following article, Baseball Caves to ‘Woke’ Cancel Culture Crowd, Will Move All-Star Game Out of Atlanta, was first published on Flag And Cross.
Joe Biden recently sat down for an interview with ESPN. He said Georgia’s new voting laws are a relic of the Jim Crow-era and would support a plan to move Baseball’s All-Star Game from Atlanta.
On Friday, Major League Baseball made the announcement.
They caved to the radical left.
Major League Baseball announced Friday that it is moving the 2021 All-Star Game out of Atlanta in response to a new Georgia law that has civil rights groups concerned about its potential to restrict voting access for people of color.
The 2021 MLB draft, a new addition to All-Star Game festivities this year, will also be relocated.
In a statement, MLB commissioner Rob Manfred said the league is “finalizing a new host city and details about these events will be announced shortly.” A source told ESPN that the 2022 All-Star Game is still planned for Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles and that that site won’t be moved up to fill the void this summer.
