Selig: 2011 All-Star Game Stays in Phoenix

Yesterday, MLB Commissioner Bud Selig told reporters he had no plans to move the 2011 All-Star Game which will be played in Phoenix. The Commish made his comments following a meeting in New York with MLB owners.

Selig has been pressured by opponents of Arizona's immigration law to move the mid-season classic.

The MLBPA has condemned the law although they have not yet announced any specific measures they will take against it.

San Diego Padres superstar Adrian Gonzalez announced earlier this month he would stay away if the game were held in Phoenix. Despite Gonzalez's stature unless other big name players join him methinks the owners (whom Selig represents) will stand their ground on this one.
