ARLINGTON, Texas Hours before the Texas Rangers were set to have Texas Gov. Greg Abbott throw out the ceremonial first pitch for the first home opener at the new Globe Life Field stadium, the governor announced he would no longer participate in any Major League Baseball events, including Monday's game.

The governor also said the state of Texas would not "not seek to host the All-Star game or any other MLB special events" and sent a letter to the Rangers explaining his decision.

Abbott said his announcement was in reaction to the league's decision to move its 2021 All-Star game and Draft from Atlanta after Georgia passed a controversial new voting law that critics say will support voter suppression while proponents argue the law will uphold "election integrity."
