MLB All-Star Game 2021 Moving Away From Atlanta Due to New Georgia Voting Law

Major League Baseball is making a huge move.

The organization announced the 2021 All-Star Game is moving outside of Atlanta in response to a new Georgia voting law that is generating controversy, as critics say it limits access to voting, especially for people of color, ESPN reported Friday (April 2).

“Over the last week, we have engaged in thoughtful conversations with Clubs, former and current players, the Players Association, and The Players Alliance, among others, to listen to their views. I have decided that the best way to demonstrate our values as a sport is by relocating this year’s All-Star Game and MLB Draft,” MLB commissioner Rob Manfred said in a statement.

President Joe Biden told ESPN previously that he would “strongly support” pulling the game out of Atlanta because of the law.

The commissioner said he “fundamentally supports voting rights for all Americans and opposes restrictions to the ballot box.”

No new site for the All-Star Game or draft were announced as of yet.

For a detailed report on what the new Georgia law means, head to The New York Times.

President Biden also recently spoke out about something serious happening in America.

St. Louis Cardinals Baseball Game Series Postponed Due To Coronavirus Outbreak Within Team

There has been another outbreak of COVID-19 coronavirus within a baseball team, CNN reports.

Seven members of the baseball team, as well six staffers from the St. Louis Cardinals have all tested positive for the virus in the past week, just days ahead of of their game series against the Detroit Tigers.

The team is still being quarantined in Milwaukee, where they were set to play against the Brewers last week.

Major League Baseball announced that the series would be postponed because of the outbreak, which follows the outbreak within the Miami Marlins earlier this month.

ESPN also reported that Commissioner Rob Manfred phoned union leader Tony Clark in a phone call about the league and players doing a better job of following the protocols put in place. He also warned him that if not followed, he would shut down the shortened season.

The plan is to restart the Cardinals‘ season on Friday, August 7, against the Chicago Cubs. However, that is all based on the test results.

Protocols put in place for the shortened MLB season included banning high-fives and spitting, and keeping fans out of stadiums.

Teams, however, are still traveling to and from stadiums in an out of state, unlike their NHL, NBA and WNBA counterparts.

The St. Louis Cardinals most recently won the World Series in 2011.

“As of game time, Yoenis Céspedes has not reported to the ballpark today. He did not reach out to management with any explanation for his absence. Our attempts to contact him have been unsuccessful,” the Mets said in a statement.

When news hit Twitter, fans wrote comments like, “This is a bit concerning,” “Here’s hoping Yoenis Cespedes is okay. Anything else is trivial in comparison,” and “We sincerely hope that Yoenis Cespedes is Ok.”
