A group representing businesses in Georgia affected by the relocation of the MLB All Star game is taking legal action seeking compensation, and baseball isn’t thrilled with it.
Major League Baseball is criticizing a lawsuit filed over the relocation of Atlanta’s All-Star game. The summer classic was moved earlier this spring from Truist Park to Denver after the state’s new voting measures were signed into law. The league called a lawsuit filed by the Job Creators Network “political theatrics.” The lawsuit seeks 100-million-dollars to help Georgia small businesses who suffered potential losses in the move.
Meanwhile this evening the Brewers are looking for their fifth consecutive win tonight against the Reds in Cincinnati. Adrian Houser will take the mound for Milwaukee and will face Sonny Gray. The Brewers are a half-game ahead of the Cubs for first place in the NL Central standings while the Reds are four-games behind.
