About three dozen people are protesting outside Nationals Park, urging commissioner Bud Selig to move the 2011 All-Star Game from Phoenix because of Arizona's new immigration legislation.
A banner reading "Bud Selig Move The All Stars Game No SB 0170" was unfurled from a parking garage, but was quickly removed before the Washington Nationals hosted the Diamondbacks on Sunday.
Selig has declined to become involved in what he says is a political issue.
The demonstrators gathered outside the center-field gates at noon, briefly walking in a circle before security personnel ushered them into a blocked-off portion of N Street.
They handed out fliers and carried signs -- some in Spanish, others in English -- and chanted "Hey, baseball, let's face it --Arizona is racist" and "Hey, Bud Selig: Move the game!"
