Chief Wahoo protests opening day

Ohio Headlines

Opponents of the Cleveland Indians’ Chief Wahoo logo are planning to protest before the team’s home opener.

This is happening even though the team has dropped the mascot from their caps and jerseys.

Organizers of the protest say they still want the team to change its name.

The team decided in early 2018 to bench the polarizing Chief Wahoo this season after lengthy talks with the leaders of Major League Baseball.

The cartoonish, red faced logo has been part of the team’s history for more than 60 years.
