JCN Reflects on MLB All-Star Game, Following Last Years Debacle

Washington, DC (July 19, 2022) — Today, Major League Baseball (MLB) will be hosting their All-Star Game in California. Last year, MLB moved their All-Star Game from its original location of Atlanta, GA to Denver, CO in an act of political protest. The decision cost the Atlanta community an estimated $100 million.

Alfredo Ortiz, President and CEO of the Job Creators Network (JCN), released the following statement:

“As Major League Baseball prepares to host the All-Star Game in California, small business owners in Georgia are still waiting for their apology. The league embarrassed itself last year after stripping Georgians of the chance to host the All-Star Game — costing them $100 million. Instead, MLB chose to punish small businesses in Georgia and move the game in the name of woke politics. But Georgia’s record-breaking voter turnout proved that Rob Manfred, Stacey Abrams, and Joe Biden were wrong about the state’s election laws. Yet they’ll never admit they caused Georgia’s small businesses to lose out on millions of dollars that would have flowed into the state if it weren’t for MLB’s woke meltdown. The people of Georgia and baseball fans throughout the county deserve better.”
