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.

Cleveland Indians name change to Guardians profoundly stupid, unnecessary

"Can anybody believe that the Cleveland Indians, a storied and cherished baseball franchise since taking the name in 1915, are changing their name to the Guardians? Such a disgrace, and I guarantee that the people who are most angry about it are the many Indians of our Country. Wouldn’t it be an honor to have a team named the Cleveland Indians, and wouldn’t it be disrespectful to rip that name and logo off of those jerseys? The people of Cleveland cannot be thrilled and I, as a FORMER baseball fan, cannot believe things such as this are happening. A small group of people, with absolutely crazy ideas and policies, is forcing these changes to destroy our culture and heritage. At some point, the people will not take it anymore!"

Trump blasts Cleveland Indians for changing name to Cleveland Guardians

CLEVELAND — Former President Donald Trump faulted the Cleveland Indians baseball team for changing its name to the Cleveland Guardians. The Indians had previously announced they were changing their name — a move that came after the Washington Redskins ditched their nickname to become the Washington Football Team. Critics contend the names — especially the Redskins and the Indians former “Wahoo” logo — are offensive to Native Americans. A number of colleges, universities and high schools have also changed some nicknames related to indigenous persons, ethnicities and past stereotypes and in recognition of historical mistreatments of Native Americans.
