Major League Baseball’s Cleveland Indians will be changing the team’s name after years of criticism and objections from Native American groups.
The team has not officially announced the move, but multiple news organizations cited people familiar with the matter saying that could happen as early as this week.
Cleveland had already taken the step of eliminating its use of a Native American caricature as the team’s logo during the 2019 season.
In July, it pledged to examine the issue of the team name in light of local and national social justice protests.
