(JustPatriots.com)- After the Braves won the World Series on Tuesday night, fans let MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred know exactly what they thought of his decision to move the 2021 All-Star Game out of Atlanta earlier this year.
They booed the guy.
As Manfred stepped up to the microphone to present the commission trophy, the crowd at Houston’s Minute Maid Park overwhelmingly booed.
Imagine how loud the booing would have been if Tuesday’s final game had been played in Atlanta instead of Houston.
Major League Baseball’s decision to move the All-Star game out of Atlanta over Georgia’s new election integrity laws, while popular among the left, was roundly condemned by baseball fans around the country. Local Atlanta businesses, many of them minority-owned, were also furious with the decision. They warned that the loss of the All-Star game would be a blow to local businesses.
And they were right. The city of Atlanta did suffer economically from the MLB’s decision to move the All-Star Game to Denver.
But Manfred was more concerned about kowtowing to the Democrat activists. In announcing his decision, Manfred wrote in a statement that Major League Baseball “fundamentally supports voting rights” and “opposes restrictions to the ballot box.” He said after engaging in “thoughtful conversations” he decided that the “best way to demonstrate our values” was to relocate the All-Star Game and the MLB draft.
As a result of his decision, Atlanta lost hundreds of millions of dollars in potential revenue. But when the Braves seemed poised to win the World Series, Manfred changed his tune. He told the Associated Press that the MLB is “looking forward to being back in Atlanta.”
But the sucking up didn’t stop there. Prior to the World Series, Manfred even defended Braves fans who use the Tomahawk Chop during games, a tradition which has long infuriated the same usual suspects that forced Manfred to move the All-Star Game.
