The MLB’s “crushing” decision to move the All-Star Game from Georgia to Colorado has enraged Georgia business owners.

On the other hand, Colorado already has voter identification and has fewer days of early in-person voting than Georgia.
Three-time World Series Champion and former World Series MVP David Ortiz, affectionately known as “Big Papi,” is an MLB studio analyst for FOX Sports.

CEO of Cobb Travel and Tourism said:
“In the initial stages of the pandemic, many Cobb hotels saw single digit occupancy numbers,”
“The 8,000-plus contracted hotel room nights that will not actualize as a result of the MLB All-Star Game relocation will have a negative impact on Cobb’s hospitality industry and other local businesses, further delaying recovery.”
“We are proud of the work that many community partners have dedicated to planning the All Star Game activities. And we will continue, as we always do, to show who we are in Cobb through our outreach, customer service and hard work,”

“I let the legislators speak for themselves, but I know for myself and our team, I realize that people have all kinds of different opinions and beliefs about the 2020 election. There were issues that happened,” and “There were issues that needed to be fixed. There are reasons to try and figure out a better way for us to hold elections. There’s nothing wrong with that.

“Obviously, that’s a manifestation of where our country currently is, our country is in many ways the greatest country in the world. In some ways, it’s broken in certain aspects where we’re not all together and not all as one. Because of that, you’re seeing demonstrations like kneeling at the anthem as part of that process. Part of our community is hurting when it shouldn’t be. It’s been ignored for such a long period of time.
“The great part of America is there are different ways to express yourself and different platforms to utilize how you express yourself. In some cases, it’s kneeling during the anthem. … I support the ability to protest in the way they see fit, as long as it’s in a legal and healthy way.
“I think there’s nothing more American than being able to express your beliefs and do it in a safe way.”
