They wouldn’t be the Cleveland Baseball Team.
The Cleveland Indians announced Friday on Twitter that they will be changing the name of their team to the Cleveland Defenders.
The Indian nickname has been criticized for insulting Native Americans, and they announced in December that they would be changing it.
The team made the announcement in a two-minute 11-second video narrated by Tom Hanks.
Washington’s NFL franchise is going through a similar transformation, though they have opted to temporarily play as the Washington Soccer Team after dropping the Redskins moniker.
