Players Call For MLB Commish To "Move The Game"

Arizona SB 1070 got a new set of enemies Tuesday.

Major League Baseball players, nearly 30% of whom are
Latino, are demanding that the 2011 All-Star Game be moved
from Phoenix, Arizona, unless the law is repealed.

The new state law would allow police who have a reasonable
suspicion to investigate and detain anyone they find to be
an illegal alien. They would then be turned over to fed-
eral authorities for deportation.

Commissioner Bud Selig has the final decision on whether to
move the All-Star Game, "but he isn't likely to listen to
the players unless he hears from fans, too," according to
the liberal website "MoveOn.org"

The site administrators included a point and click petition
that will end up in the commissioner's e-mail in-box.
