You need an ID to pick up tickets to attend a baseball game. Or to get a beer inside once you’re there. But MLB is moving the All-Star game because you need an ID to vote? This is pure insanity,” Clay Travis responded to the news on Twitter.
“This is the worst decision baseball has made since the 1995 strike. Simply pathetic,” Clay goes on.
Last week, MLB Players Association executive director Tony Clark said that players were ready to discuss moving this summer’s MLB All-Star Game, claiming that the GOP-sponsored election reform bill is racist against black people.
The bill that President Joe Biden and other Democrats call “Jim Crow 2.0” standardizes voting hours and requires a state-issued ID for absentee voting. Yep.
Speaking to ESPN this week, Biden said he supported relocating the All-Star game.
So, where is it moving to?
