The removal of the Indian dashboard road sign began last November.

The team announced its name change on July 23.

“We are thrilled to usher in the next era of deep baseball history in Cleveland,” team owner and president Paul Dolan said when the new name was revealed. “Cleveland has been and always will be the most important part of who we are. Therefore, we wanted a name that strongly represents the pride, resilience and loyalty of the Clevelanders. “Guardians” reflects those attributes that define us while drawing inspiration from the iconic Guardians of Traffic just outside the ballpark on the Hope Memorial Bridge. It brings to life the pride the people of Cleveland feel in our city and how we fight together for all who choose to be part of the Cleveland baseball family. While “Indians” will always be a part of our history, our new name will help unite our fans and our city because we are all Cleveland Guardians. »
