Cleveland Indians Unveil New Uniforms Without Racist Chief Wahoo Logo [VIDEO]
The new uniforms feature the block ‘C’ logo on the front of the cap, with jerseys reading ‘Indians’ and ‘Cleveland’ in various colors. The MLB All-Star Game logo will replace the Chief Wahoo logo, which has appeared on the team’s sleeves since 2014.

MLB commissioner Rob Manfred and Indians owner Paul Dolan announced earlier in 2018 that Chief Wahoo would no longer appear on uniforms or stadium signs following the end of the 2018 season. Manfred said the logo would no longer be “appropriate for on-field use,” although merchandise featuring the logo will still be available for purchase in the stadium and throughout retail stores in Ohio.
They will continue to sell the merchandise purely to retain the trademark they possess, according to CBS.
