MLB announced that Cleveland would stop using the Chief Wahoo logo

Major League Baseball announced Monday that Cleveland would stop using the Chief Wahoo logo on its uniforms and on any banners or signs in Progressive Field starting in the 2019 season, according to David Waldstein of the New York Times.

Commissioner Rob Manfred noted the organization “Ultimately agreed with my position that the logo is no longer appropriate for on-field use in Major League Baseball, and I appreciate Mr. [Paul] Dolan’s acknowledgment that removing it from the on-field uniform by the start of the 2019 season is the right course.”
