MILWAUKEE (AP) - Protesters rallied outside baseball commissioner Bud Selig's office Tuesday, calling on him to move next year's All-Star game out of Arizona to protest its tough new immigration law.
The rally of about two dozen people came one day after Brewers pitcher Yovani Gallardo joined a number of Latino players threatening not to play in next year's All-Star game if they make the team.
Christine Neumann-Ortiz, the executive director of the immigrants' rights group Voces de la Frontera, called Gallardo courageous and said Selig needs to take notice. Selig was in California for Tuesday night's All-Star game.
