The MLB All-Star game was recently moved out of Atlanta, Georgia because of its new law that restricts voting access in the state. The game might be playing in Denver, Colorado at Coors Field. 

 

During Tuesday’s installment of “Nothing personal with David Samson.” David Samson was the former president of the Marlins. He thinks that the All-Star game should not be moved.

 

Samson also said, “I wouldn’t have moved the game,” said Samson. “Because while I do think that there’s an intersection between sports and politics — I don’t think players should shut up and dribble — I think it’s critical that we’re all educated and make decisions. I don’t think it’s critical that we’re all Democratic or Republican. I think it’s critical that you are what you believe in. It is very dangerous when running a company to make a decision based on what I perceive to be pressure from one side or the other. It’s important to make the best decision for your company.” The best decision for the MLB commissioner to do was to move the All-Star game.
