A South Carolina congressman is planning to attack MLB’s antitrust status following the league’s All-Star Game announcement.
MLB announced on Friday that it was moving the 2021 All-Star Game out of Atlanta. The move is intended to punish the state of Georgia, which recently signed SB202 into law (full text of the bill here). The “election integrity” bill is designed to improve the voting and election process following issues that were made evident during the 2020 election. There are many pro-voting aspects of the bill, though some activist groups have taken issue with some aspects of the bill.
