Today Jen Psaki tried to distance
President Biden from the MLB decision to pull the All Star game from Georgia, but the MLB website specifically refers to Biden's criticism before the announcement
Major League Baseball announced on Friday that it will relocate the 2021
All-Star Game and MLB Draft, originally scheduled to take place in
Atlanta, to a to-be-determined location.
The decision comes a little more than a week after the passage of S.B. 202, a Georgia law that President Joe Biden criticized earlier this week, saying that it will restrict voting access for residents of the state.
Commissioner Rob Manfred said in a statement that the decision to move the All-Star Game was "the best way to demonstrate our values as a sport" and was made after consultation with teams, former and current players, the MLB Players Association and The Players Alliance, among others.
