Cleveland will announce a new team name this winter.

Post by Jocephus »

Michael S. Schmidt and David Waldstein of the New York Times reports that Cleveland will announce a new team name this winter.

Cleveland has been known as the Indians for 105 years. That will change this winter, with Schmidt reporting that the announcement could come as early as this week. This move comes shortly after the Washington Football Team dropped it's moniker due to cultural sensitivity and a call to no longer use Native Americans as mascots and imagery. It's possible that Cleveland will use a similar approach to the WFT, as they will want to have a team name trademarked and licensed before announcing anything. It's about time.
