(FOX) – The Cleveland Indians officially announced their new name on Friday.
The decision to change the name came last year amid racial tension in the U.S. as professional sports teams came under fire for having Native American monikers.
The baseball team will be known as the Guardians.
Cleveland launched a section on its official website dedicated to the new name. Team owner Paul Dolan wrote in a letter to fans the “Indians will always be part of our history just as Cleveland has always been the most important part of our identity.”
