Cleveland Indians fans are reacting the team's decision to remove its controversial logo from their uniforms starting in 2019.

Versions of Chief Wahoo have been the team's logo for about 70 years. The caricature has also been the subject of protests and lawsuits. Still, many fans have a sentimental attachment to it.

After years of controversy, the Cleveland Indians are phasing out Chief Wahoo. The team and Major League Baseball have announced the logo will be removed rom team uniforms after this season.

The change follows a longstanding debate about whether Chief Wahoo is appropriate for a team symbol.

WKSU sports commentator Terry Pluto says Major League Baseball and Indians owner Paul Dolan agreed to nix the logo of a grinning caricature of a Native American man that many find offensive. But the change isn't a ban
