The fierce debate over a new Arizona immigration law has spread to America's pastime as protesters plan to demonstrate against the city's baseball team on Thursday.
The protest will occur outside Wrigley Field in Chicago, Illinois, where the Arizona Diamondbacks will start a four-game series against the Chicago Cubs.
"America's favorite pastime will be hit with a reality check," the protest's organizers wrote on a Facebook page set up to publicize their rally. "Bring signs and banners to the protest."
By early Thursday morning, the Facebook group had more than 800 members.
The new Arizona law requires police to check whether a person is in the United States legally if there is a reason to suspect he or she isn't.
Critics say the law could foster racial profiling.
Along with the protest at Wrigley Field, the group said it is planning a protest march for May 1.
