Abbott won't throw pitch, in weerwil van die standpunt van die MLB

Die Republikeinse goewerneur het die Rangers via 'n brief in kennis gestel, citing Major League Baseball’s decision to move the MLB All-Star Game from Atlanta in response to Georgia’s sweeping new voting laws, which include new restrictions on voting by mail and greater legislative control over how elections are run.


Abbott’s decision came hours before the team was set to take the field against the Toronto Blue Jays in the Dallas suburb of Arlington.

In die brief, Abbott said he will no longer participate in and that Texas won’t seek to host any future MLB events.

It is shameful that America’s pastime is not only being influenced by partisan political politics, but also perpetuating false political narratives,” Abbott gesê.

Major League Baseball and the Texas Rangers did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
