Radnor, PA – July 8th, 2006 – On July 8th, 2006, Brandon Mitchell, President of MLB America wrote a letter of protest to the Office of the Commissioner of Baseball in regard to the rule that states that each team must have a representative sent to the All-Star Game. The letter displays examples of far superior players not being allowed to play in the All-Star game due to this rule.
America’s baseball fans are displeased at [url=http://www.linkedwords.com/sports/baseball/baseball-major-league/major-league-teams/major_league_baseball.php]major league baseball[/url] for not letting them see the players they truly want to see play. The findings are derived from months of ongoing discussion and debate at the website mlbamerica.com. According to MLB America President Brandon Mitchell, more than 80% of fans that participated in the polls found the rule wrong and poorly substantiated. “Because of this rule, the fans cannot see some of the premier players all playing together,” Mitchell said, “It is clearly unacceptable.”
According to the letter written to the commissioner’s office, the most recent example of a premier player being left out is that of Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling. Curt Schilling is 10-3 thus far with a 3.63 ERA, and more than 100 strikeouts. Mark Redman, who was given a spot on the roster, is 6-4 with a 5.27 ERA.
MLB America was founded in 2003 by Mitchell to provide [url=http://www.linkedwords.com/sports/baseball/baseball-fan-pages/baseball_fans.php]baseball fans[/url] with a wide choice of news, rumors, and analysis regarding major league baseball. This site offers a wide range of articles, research materials, and special reports for baseball fans.
