    Default Cleveland changing name from Indians to Guardians after 2021 season

    Known as the Indians since 1915, Cleveland's Major League Baseball team will next be called the Guardians.

    The ballclub announced the name change Friday with a video on Twitter narrated by actor Tom Hanks, ending months of internal discussions triggered by a national reckoning by institutions and teams to permanently drop logos and names considered racist.

    The name change is effective at the end of the 2021 season.

    The organization spent most of the past year whittling down a list of potential names that was at nearly 1,200 just over a month ago. But the process, which the team said included 140 hours of interviews with fans, community leaders, front-office personnel and a survey of 40,000 fans, quickly accelerated, and the club landed on Guardians.

    They are within their right to change their name, and anybody who cares needs to find something better to do with their time.

    Also the logo is shit. LMAO. Looks like something you would make in a team creator in a video game.

    There are 2 major league baseball teams that are named after socks.

    Their logo is a pair of socks.

    I have a feeling the majority of people upset about this are not, were never, and will never be Cleveland Indian fans.

    It is within my right to express my distaste. And anyone who cares that my opinion differs needs to find something better to do with their time.

    You're spreading cancel culture nonsense by silencing anyone who disagrees.
