Judge denies request to return MLB All-Star game to Atlanta


Major League Baseball won’t be required to return next month’s All-Star game to metro Atlanta, a federal judge in New York decided late Thursday afternoon.

U.S. District Judge Valerie Caproni denied a request for a preliminary injunction that, if granted, would have blocked the move of the July 13 game from Truist Park to Denver.

The injunction was being sought by conservative small-business advocacy group Job Creators Network (JCN), which last week filed a lawsuit over MLB’s early-April decision to relocate the game to Colorado in response to Georgia’s new voting law.

Was there even any pressure on MLB to move it at the time?

Seemed counter productive to the sport to me.
