  • Solving MLB’s pine tar problem isn’t as easy as it looks. Here’s why

Major League Baseball (MLB) has made a decision to suspend all political donations in the wake of last week's riots at the U.S. Capitol, the Associated Press reports.

"In light of the unprecedented events last week at the U.S. Capitol, MLB is suspending contributions from its Political Action Committee pending a review of our political contribution policy going forward", the league said in a statement to The Associated Press on Wednesday.

None of this is to say that MLB's owners will be suspending their donations.

Other major USA sports leagues could soon follow suit. A spokesman for the NFL, which has had a stormy relationship with President Trump because of his strident opposition to player protests during the national anthem, told The Post, "We are reevaluating our political giving policies through the Gridiron PAC".

MLB joins a number of major corporations, including tech giants Facebook, Google and Microsoft and defense contractors such as Northrop Grumman and Raytheon Technologies, in halting political action committee contributions to both major parties. The "Save America's Pastime Act" appeared on Page 1,967 of a $1.3 trillion spending bill.

"The Senate Republicans are Ted Cruz (Texas) and Cindy Hyde-Smith (Mississippi), and the House Republicans are Roger Williams (Texas), Kevin McCarthy (California), David Schweikert (Arizona), Steve Chabot (Ohio), Markwayne Mullin (Oklahoma), Adrian Smith (Nebraska), Michael Burgess (Texas), Rick Crawford (Arkansas) and Elise Stefanik (New York)", the AP reports.
