Major League Baseball Commissioner Robert D. Manfred, Jr. announced Friday the MLB is moving the 2021 All Star Game and Draft from Atlanta in response to the new voting integrity law passed in Georgia last month. The All Star Game was set to be hosted by the Atlanta Braves at Truist Park stadium on July 13. The draft was to be held in Atlanta July 11-13.
Joe Biden told ESPN on Wednesday he “would strongly support” MLB moving the game, calling the Georgia law “Jim Crow on steroids”.
