Local clergy call on MLB to speak on racial justice

CINCINNATI (FOX19) -

Local clergy are calling on Major League Baseball to speak out against police brutality and what they say is the blatant disrespect of African Americans in Ohio's criminal justice system. 

The leaders say they will present four asks to MLB in anticipation of July's All-Star Game in Cincinnati. 

A news conference is scheduled 10 a.m. Wednesday at the intersection of Joe Nuxhall Way and Second Street near Great American Ballpark.
