The Cleveland Indians altered their jerseys ahead of a four-game series that began in Toronto yesterday, removing the controversial caricature of an Indigenous man.
The red-skinned, feather-wearing cartoon was removed from its usual spot on the left sleeve of the team’s grey away jerseys as
Cleveland took the field against the Blue Jays at Rogers Centre.
The move comes nine months after Cleveland announced that it would no longer use the logo starting with the 2019 season.
Cleveland won last night’s contest 9-4.
