DOUG GLANVILLE BREAKS DOWN MLB ALL-STAR DECISION
Major League Baseball made the decision last week to move this season’s All-Star Game. Doug Glanville joined Cubs Live! on Saturday to offer his viewpoint, saying:
“…[When] you go back to Jackie Robinson being this pioneering figure in opening up and breaking down barriers, most of the time since that point, baseball has kind of followed. And to take this lead step as a corporate enterprise and something that is woven into the fabric of American society, you recognize that this was a big step because you know there’s going to be blowback around the political implications.”
