"...what have we got—a Republic or a Monarchy?” “A Republic, if you can keep it

Below is a letter I e-mailed to the Detroit Tigers.

Dear Detroit Tigers:
I WAS a long time fan of the Detroit Tigers. I attended games in the past. I USED to watch the Tigers on TV. I am gone!
I served 21+ years between Air Force and MI Army Guard. Vietnam Era. Cold War. Operation Iraqi Freedom. What MLB and the Tigers are now doing with "WOKE" is an insult to me and my service defending this nation. Kneeling during the National Anthem. I stand at attention and SALUTE. That music represents the FREEDOM the players have to play the game making more money than I will ever see.
Now with MLB moving the All Star game out of Atlanta, because the State of Georgia passed laws to defend the integrity of voting. If I have to show a photo ID to attend just a ball game, why shouldn't a person have to do the same to vote. Voting integrity is far more important than a mere ball game!
When the Tigers and MLB wake up and respect the Nation I served to defend, I will be back. Until then, I have my APBA baseball game with Ernie Harwell calling the game.
Sincerely;
SGT William A. Geresy (ret)
MI Army National Guard
Former Fan

I got this reply from the Detroit Tigers this evening.  Below is a copy.

Greetings SGT Geresy, 

Thank you for contacting the Detroit Tigers, for your longstanding support of the team, and most importantly for your service to our country.

 

The decision of hosting the MLB All-Star Game rests with the Commissioner’s Office and Major League Baseball.  We appreciate you contacting us, and we will pass along your comments.

Take care,

​​​​Alison
