Indians, MLB will discuss future of Chief Wahoo after World Series

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The MLB will talk about the Chief Wahoo logo with the Indians after the postseason ends, commissioner Rob Manfred said on ESPN's Mike & Mike.

"I understand that particular logo is offensive to some people, and I understand why," said Manfred. "On the other side of the coin, you have a lot of fans that have history and are invested in the symbols of the Indians. I think that after the World Series, at an appropriate point in time, Mr. [Larry] Dolan and I have agreed we'll have a conversation about what should happen with that particular logo going forward."

Discussions about the Indians name and logo came to the forefront this postseason when a Canadian indigenous activist proposed banning Chief Wahoo from appearing on the ALCS broadcasts. A judge ruled that the team would be allowed to use the name and logo.
