Major League Baseball (MLB) has decided to suspend all political donations in the wake of last week’s riots at the U.S. Capitol, the Associated Press reports.
The move comes as several corporations have suspended contributions who voted to decertify the elections.
“In light of the unprecedented events last week at the U.S. Capitol, MLB is suspending contributions from its Political Action Committee pending a review of our political contribution policy going forward,” the league told The Associated Press on Wednesday.
Other major U.S. sports leagues could soon follow suit. The National Football League announced that it is evaluating its political contributions, but has not yet committed to stopping or suspending them.
“We are re-evaluating our political giving policies through the Gridiron PAC,” NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told the AP.
Unlike other corporations that only suspended contributions to politicians who voted to decertify, MLB suspended contributions to members of both political parties.
