Cleveland Indians Will Change Name to Guardians

On Friday, Cleveland’s baseball team announced their new name after 2021 will be the “Guardians”! It is the fifth name in organization history, following the Indians. Over 1,000 name options were considered, 40,000 fans were surveyed, and hundreds of hours of interviewing and brainstorming were put into this decision.

“We are excited to usher in the next era of the deep history of baseball in Cleveland,” Team Owner and Chairman Paul Dolan said. “Cleveland has and always will be the most important part of our identity. Therefore, we wanted a name that strongly represents the pride, resiliency and loyalty of Clevelanders. ‘Guardians’ reflects those attributes that define us while drawing on the iconic Guardians of Traffic just outside the ballpark on the Hope Memorial Bridge. It brings to life the pride Clevelanders take in our city and the way 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 unify our fans and city as we are all Cleveland Guardians.”

The core red, white, and blue color scheme will remain the same despite the name change. Other similarities, such as a script text logo, will remain intact.

The change represents the ushering in of a new era of professional baseball in northeast Ohio.

President of Baseball Operations Chris Antonetti said, “This is a historic moment for our franchise, and we are excited for our players and staff to debut our new team name and look in 2022. We look forward to our team proudly representing the city of Cleveland as the Guardians. Our club will strive to unite and inspire our entire community.”
