There has been alot of buzz surrounding the Cleveland Indians and their decision on keeping the team’s Chief Wahoo logo.
Since 1932, the cartoon drawing of an Indian Chief (which is actually a brave because of the singular feather), has been the beloved and primary image for the baseball team and an icon for the city. Recently, the team has decided to shift future focus to their “Block C” logo, changing Chief Wahoo’s status to secondary.

You may even remember the controversy the Indians faced regarding their logo in the past. The Owner of the Indians, Paul Dolan, told the Cleveland Plain Dealer; “We do have empathy for those who take issue with it. We have minimized the use of it and we’ll continue to do what we think is appropriate.” When asked about the future of the former primary logo, Dolan made it clear that the Indians have “No plans to get rid of Chief Wahoo, it is part of our history and legacy.”

Regardless of the logo, anticipation is building for the Cleveland Indians to host the Boston Red Sox at Progressive Field, April 4th! The matchup is the start of a three game series with the Sox, and with off season adjustments, the Indians are hoping to get a good start off to the season. Tickets and more information are both available at Go Tribe!
