SOVIET STYLE: Bernie Says Major League Baseball’s ‘Greed’ Could ‘Destroy Local Economies’

Move over Walmart, McDonald’s, and Amazon; Bernie Sanders has set his sights on another major American industry: Major League Baseball.

Sanders’ latest attacks focus on the League’s current proposal that would reduce the number of Minor League Baseball Clubs.

“.@MLB is proposing to cut 42 Minor League Baseball clubs.

This has nothing to do with what’s good for baseball and everything to do with greed.

It would destroy thousands of jobs and devastate local economies.

I’m urging @MLB Commissioner Manfred to stop this proposal,” posted Sanders on social media.

 

“Depriving American families in small and mid-sized towns the only opportunity they have to see a live baseball game with future big league players at a reasonable price is both unwise and unnecessary,” said Sanders in a written letter to the Commissioner of Baseball.
