Baseball, tourism caught in boycott of Arizona law --California state, city officials urge cutting contracts 27 Apr 2010 Immigration rights activists called on baseball fans on Tuesday to stay home from Arizona Diamondbacks games as part of a broad economic boycott to protest a statewide crackdown on illegal immigration signed into law in Arizona.
