Arizona Fall League
Could the Arizona Fall League be
where players make their first
statement on the AZ immigration
law?

There has been a lot of speculation as to what actions, if any, Major League Baseball might take with Arizona’s SB 1070 -- the immigration reform law -- set to officially take effect in around 90 days. There have been calls for the All-Star Game, set to be held at the Diamondback’s Chase Field in Phoenix to be moved, with advocates citing the NFL’s action in moving the 1993 Super Bowl from Tempe to the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.

Into the fray, Michael Weiner, the executive director of the MLB Players Association, released a statement on Friday, which read in part, "If the current law goes into effect, the MLBPA will consider additional steps necessary to protect the rights and interests of our members."

While the PA remains hopeful that the law will be rescinded or modified to the point of satisfying the players, if not, one might speculate as to what “additional steps” they might take.

While it remains a real threat, the focus on players potentially boycotting the All-Star Game could be a secondary action to an event that will be occurring before then: the Arizona Fall League.

While the Fall League does not have the sex appeal that the All-Star Game has, having the players boycott the event would send a clear message that they are willing to act, and that in doing so, would add weight to the idea that stars of the league could boycott Spring Training or the All-Star Game. The main issue would be whether those attending the Fall League are union members or if players that aren't union members would be given support by the union.

Watch the calendar and see where the political climate is at the end of the current season. With the Fall League set to start on the 13th of October, it’s possible that the players make their first big statement on the Arizona immigration law at a small event in the Fall League.
