MLB justified moving All-Star Game

What was supposed to be a piece about how Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game should be moved from Atlanta, but very likely won’t, is very surprisingly now one about the fact that it was. The oldest and arguably least socially progressive of the big five American men’s professional sports leagues made a bold and necessary move to rebuke the Georgia legislature for passing SB 202, a bill that severely limits voting accessibility, particularly modes of voting that Democratic-leaning areas in the state use.

As to why I didn’t think the game would be moved: it never seemed like something the MLB or Commissioner Rob Manfred had the guts to do.
