A group of small business owners have decided to sue Major League baseball for their decision to remove the All-Star Game from Atlanta because of their secure voting laws.
A conservative group representing small businesses that says MLB’s decision to move its All-Star game out of Atlanta is proof Commissioner Rob Manfred has “no balls” is now ready to throw another brush-back pitch.
FOX Business has learned that the right-leaning trade group founded by Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus — plans to file a lawsuit in Manhattan federal court Tuesday alleging that MLB’s decision has injured Atlanta’s small business community. Also to be named in the lawsuit, according to a person with direct knowledge of the matter is the Major League Baseball Players Association – the union which represents some 1,200 players – and which the Job Creators Network contends played a role in the decision to move the game out of Atlanta to Denver.
Now I’m not naïve enough to think this group will win – since there are two tiers of justice in America – but if it’s enough to give Major League Baseball a lot of negative press, I’m all for it.
