Baseball No Longer America’s Game

By caving to Woke Left, MLB proves it is ‘past it’s time’

Fairfax, Va. – In reaction to the announcement today by Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred to move the MLB all-star game from Atlanta to protest Georgia’s new voter integrity laws Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning issued the following statement:

“Major League Baseball’s decision to stand against basic voter integrity laws in this nation is tantamount to taking strike three with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning. After last year’s decision to kneel to the Marxist movement Black Lives Matter, today’s announcement ends baseball’s status as ‘America’s Game.’ Americans for Limited Government urges fans to make the New York City-based commissioner’s decision a deciding factor on whether to spend entertainment dollars with a sport which believes there should be more ballot integrity for all-star game voting than for electing state and national officials. Mark April 2, 2021 as the day when the national pastime decided to go past it’s time.”

Americans for Limited Government led a national email campaign to urge Commissioner Manfred and team owners to stand up to the Woke Left and keep the all-star game in Atlanta.
