MLB Canceled

Canceled: Major League Baseball Boycott Trending On Social Media

Major League Baseball decided to cancel Atlanta in protest of Georgia’s new voting law, and fans are canceling MLB.

The “Midsummer Classic” was going to be played July 13 at Truist Park, home of the Atlanta Braves. A new site has not yet been announced.

“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,” Commissioner Robert D. Manfred Jr. said in a statement. “Major League Baseball fundamentally supports voting rights for all Americans and opposes restrictions to the ballot box.”

The new voting law requires a voter to have identification for mail-in voting and makes it illegal to take food or water to voters in line, but still allows folks to bring their own food and water.

MLB also finds it illegal to take food or water into a game and requires spectators to pay $10,00 for a water-downed cherry coke. Ahem…

Friday night former President Trump released a statement on MLB’s woke decision, “Baseball is already losing tremendous numbers of fans, and now they leave Atlanta with their All-Star Game because they are afraid of the Radical Left Democrats who do not want voter I.D., which is desperately needed, to have anything to do with our elections. Boycott baseball and all of the woke companies that are interfering with Free and Fair Elections. Are you listening Coke, Delta, and all!”

On Saturday, fans took to twitter to do just that. #boycottmlb.

Carmine Sabia tweeted out, “I’m a mega New York Yankees fan and baseball is my favorite sport and I plan to #BoycottMLB. Politics is not your business. You should not have gotten involved.”

“Cancel your @MLBNetwork@mlb subscriptions like your freedoms depend upon it! They do!,” said Nathaniel W. Jackson.

On Saturday, Republican lawmakers, including Senators Ted Cruz, Texas, and Mike Lee, Utah, have called for an end to Major League Baseball’s antitrust exemption after the league announced the 2021 Atlanta cancellation.

Rep. Jeff Duncan tweeted out, “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.”

Senator Mike Lee said, “Why does @MLB still have antitrust immunity? It’s time for the federal government to stop granting special privileges to specific, favored corporations—especially those that punish their political opponents.”

Baseball antitrust exemptions have been in place since a 1922 Supreme Court decision, although they have been updated several times. 

Rep. Duncan followed up with, “An overwhelming bipartisan majority of Americans support requiring an ID to vote, and any organization that abuses its power to oppose secure elections deserves increased scrutiny under the law.”

  1. I am 69 and have been a Reds fan since I was old enough to remember. I am a patriot first and am taking a stand against the lunacy and hypocracy of the left which MLB has decided to support. I have cancelled being a season ticket holder and refuse to view any games on television. If MLB issues a public apology I may renew my interest. Right now I am completely turned off by the NFL, NBA and MLB’s woke politics!
