Tony Clark, the director of the Major League Baseball Players' Association said on Friday that he'd like to talk about moving the All-Star game away from Atlanta in the wake of new voting measures for GA state elections.
On Thursday, the controversial bill was signed into law in the state of GA, which prohibits mail-in voting and puts tighter controls on elections. Opponents of the bill claim that it will affect people of color more than any other group.
Similar bills are being passed in many states all across the union.
According to ESPN, Clark said the following when interviewed:
"Players are very much aware [of the current situation]. As it relates to the All-Star Game, we have not had a conversation with the league on that issue. If there is an opportunity to, we would look forward to having that conversation."
Currently, the All-Star game is slated to take place on Jul. 13 of 2021, making it the first time in over two decades that the All-Star game would be played in the city of Atlanta.
In the year 2017, the NBA did actually move its All-Star game from Charlotte NC in an act of protest over another bill.
