The Associated Press – Bud Selig likes to call himself a student of history.
If so, he’s headed for an “F” on this assignment, and he’s not alone. Rarely passing up a chance to laud baseball as a force for driving social change, the commissioner and players’ union have been quiet far too long about the biggest opportunity looming on the horizon.
That would be MLB’s plan to stage the All-Star game, two weeks from now, in Phoenix, where a tough local immigration law means that nearly a third of the players — like many Latinos who call Arizona home — worry that a routine traffic stop could escalate into a humiliating “papers, please” confrontation.
