Biden Will Go Down as the President Who Poisoned Baseball

John Kass, Tribune Content Agency on

As the Biden-driven all-star boycott of Georgia took shape, as panicked corporations sided with the president and against Georgia lest they themselves be shamed by the media as racists, an odd thing happened:

Georgia’s failed Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacy Abrams began panicking, calling for a stop to boycotts, saying minorities in the state would be hurt. Abrams doesn’t want to wear the jacket for Black business owners losing out on that $100 million.

But she will. It suits her.

Years ago, America was in love with those church-of-baseball movies. One of the most popular was “Field of Dreams.”

“America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers,” said James Earl Jones. “It’s been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time.”

Now Biden, Democrats and the woke corporations caving to woke activists have rolled over the game.


They’ve left their mark. And Biden has his legacy.
