MANFRED DUCKS JOB CREATORS NETWORK’S MLB LAWSUIT WHILE ATLANTA SMALL BUSINESSES TAKE HIS ALL-STAR GAME MOVE ON THE CHIN

Press ReleaseJune 2, 2021

Today, JCN attempted to serve Major League Baseball with its lawsuit holding the league accountable for hurting local small businesses by moving the All-Star Game to Denver, but was told by MLB’s mailroom, “We have been instructed not to accept service.”

Alfredo Ortiz, president and CEO of the Job Creators Network, released the following statement:

“MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred is ducking JCN’s lawsuit by refusing to be served, a tacit admission that he dropped the ball by moving the MLB All-Star game from Atlanta. While Manfred hides out in his $6 million Upper East Side penthouse, Atlanta small business owners continue to take his decision on the chin, losing out on over $100 million in economic activity when they need it most. It’s not surprising that someone who would cave to activist lies about Georgia’s voting law would also spinelessly hide from the consequences. Manfred is behind in the count with no balls and all strikes, but he can get out of this jam by doing right by small businesses and immediately moving the All-Star game back to Atlanta where it belongs. If he refuses, it’s only a matter of time before he gets served and strikes out looking.”
