"I have decided that the best way to demonstrate our values as a sport is by relocating this year's All-Star Game and Major League Baseball draft", Manfred said. The provision instead intends to apply to people passing out advertisements, or gifts, something already contained in similar laws in Minnesota, Montana, and NY, which has a likewise policy that applies to "meat, drink, tobacco, refreshment, or provision".
"Major League Baseball fundamentally supports voting rights for all Americans and opposes restrictions to the ballot box", he added.
"I really don't follow any kind of politics, really, but as far as the All-Star Game, that's kind of a bummer for the city of Atlanta", said Red Sox pitcher Garrett Richards.
Manfred said the league "engaged in thoughtful conversations" with clubs, former and current players and the players' union to consider their views before making the decision.

On Friday's broadcast of the Fox News Channel's "Tucker Carlson Tonight", Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) stated that NY has harsher voting laws than Georgia, and that he supposes that we should boycott Major League Baseball for having its headquarters in NY. "I will not back down".
"Like many Georgians, I am disappointed that the MLB is relocating the All-Star game; however, I commend the players, owners and League commissioner for speaking out", Abrams said. "We will continue to stand for accessible, secure elections that are free and fair". Even though the corporation released a statement in March noting it supports "improvements that would enhance accessibility, maximize voter participation, maintain election integrity, and serve all Georgians", the mob made sure the hashtag #BoycottCocaCola trended on social media.
