Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) turned down an invitation to throw out the first pitch at the Texas Rangers’ home opening game on Monday, citing Major League Baseball’s decision to boycott Georgia.

The Republican governor turned down the invite in a Monday letter to Rangers COO Neil Leibman. Abbott said he is personally boycotting all MLB events because of the league’s decision to pull its 2021 all-star game and rookie draft out of Atlanta in protest of the state’s election reforms signed into law on March 25.
