MLB, Players Not Expected To Make Political Stand On Immigration Law At All-Star Game
Published June 28, 2011
SILENCE IS GOLDEN? The AP’s Jim Litke wrote MLB Commissioner Bud Selig and the MLBPA “have been quiet far too long" about the immigration law. Selig's silence “could be the result of several things,” with the most recent reason being he is “probably spending more time closeted with lawyers these days because of the tug-of-war” over the Dodgers. Litke wrote, “Selig and the union simply may be laying low in hopes the courts will make it a moot issue before they have to take a stand. They may get their wish, but perhaps not soon enough” (AP, 6/27).
