Mark Teixeira and Jimmy Rollins for "Card Check" Legislation

Posted: Oct 28, 2009 3:10 PM
Filed under "you learn something new every day": the Major League Baseball Players' Association is a member of the AFL-CIO, which is pushing the Employee Free Choice Act. The MLBPA, in conjunction with the AFL-CIO, has put out an ad featuring quite a few big league ballplayers in support of the controversial legislation.

The ad says that these players support the card check legislation. Two questions: Are any of them on your favorite team? And do you really think these multimillionaire athletes really understand what's on the table or care about the average American worker?

For those interested, the count is two Phillies featured in the ad (Shane Victorino and Jimmy Rollins) to one Yankee (Mark Teixeira). If the big bosses here at Townhall permitted endorsements, I think that might swing it to the Yankees.
