MLB All-Star Game’s Return to Georgia Vindicates JCNF’s 2021 Lawsuit

Alfredo Ortiz, president and CEO of Job Creators Network, released the following statement in response to the news that Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game is returning to Georgia in 2025:

“MLB’s announcement that it will hold the 2025 All-Star Game in Georgia is a tacit admission that JCNF’s lawsuit over MLB’s woke decision to move the 2021 All-Star Game was correct on the merits. In 2021, MLB caved to woke activists, who distorted Georgia’s election laws that make it easier to vote but harder to cheat, and moved that year’s All-Star Game from Atlanta to Denver, costing small businesses in the state $100 million in lost economic activity. Georgia’s commonsense election laws haven’t changed since then, but thanks to the hard work of groups like JCN, there’s been a backlash to woke activism to the point where MLB can now return the All-Star Game to Georgia where it belonged in 2021. JCNF’s 2021 lawsuit against MLB may have lost in the courts, but today’s decision to return the All-Star Game to Georgia proves our case won in the court of public opinion.”
