From the LA Times article on the complete flop of plans to boycott Tuesday`s baseball All-Star Game in Arizona to protest SB1070:

Shortly after Arizona lawmakers passed SB 1070, a number of All-Star-caliber players promised to boycott the game if it were held in Arizona. Among the most prominent was Adrian Gonzalez, who was born in San Diego and grew up in Tijuana. Last year, Gonzalez, then playing for the Padres, called the law "immoral" and a violation of human rights that "goes against what this country is built on."
But recently Gonzalez, who as a member of the Boston Red Sox was voted into the American League`s starting lineup at first base, said he was "not big into politics" and that he intended to play in Phoenix.
