Indians Owner Says Name Won’t Change in 2021
CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Indians are changing their name. They just don’t know to what or when. After months of discussions with a variety of groups, including Native Americans who have long protested against the team’s use of a moniker and symbols that many deem racist, the American League team is dropping the name it has been known by since 1915. Owner Paul Dolan told The Associated Press in an interview Monday that the team will continue to be called the Indians in the 2021 season while new names are considered. He said the team will not adopt an interim name.
