NYT Report Claims Cleveland’s Baseball Team to Drop Team’s Nickname ‘Indians’

new nickname will be announced soon
(FOX NEWS) – Cleveland’s baseball team appears to be headed in a different direction with its nickname.
The New York Times reported on Sunday that the Cleveland Indians have decided to change their team name.
The newspaper cited three sources familiar with the decision, and the move is expected to come in light of the Washington Football Team changing its name back in July.
Cleveland is reportedly expected to announce its plans sometime this week.
The Indians — previously known as the Forest Citys, Spiders, Bluebirds, Bronchos, and Naps before adopting their current name in 1915 — could keep their name and uniforms for the 2021 season, but the New York Times cited one source saying that they will “shift away from it as early as 2022.”
