The Cleveland Indians’ jerseys will look a bit different starting in 2019, with the team removing the Chief Wahoo insignia. Major League Baseball announced the decision on Monday. The Indians will discontinue the use of the logo on their uniforms after the 2018 season. The mutual decision was made by the Indians and the league, according to a news release from Major League Baseball. MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred called the logo “no longer appropriate.” The Indians opted to go back to the Block C as their primary mark on apparel before the 2014 season. Cleveland removed Chief Wahoo from their road cap in 2011 and from their home batting helmet in 2013.
