They didn’t like the election integrity laws passed in Georgia.
Biden supported this move.

Now, GOP lawmakers are threatening MLB’s antitrust exemption.
GOP Rep. Jeff Duncan (SC-R) announced that he ordered his staff to introduce legislation to strip them of their antitrust exception.
In light of @MLB's stance to undermine election integrity laws, I have instructed my staff to begin drafting legislation to remove Major League Baseball's federal antitrust exception.

Other GOP lawmakers have begun throwing their support behind it.
