How will you remember Chief Wahoo logo |

Everybody’s favorite, Paul Hoynes, tackles the fans’ questions. From Hoynsie:

I think we can all agree that there are bigger things to worry about in the world than a logo for a baseball team. I still like Chief Wahoo and I don’t think my opinion will ever change on that. To me it means baseball and going to the old Stadium when I was growing up.

But MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred and the team have agreed that this will be the logo’s last season. The organization will retain the trademark and retail rights to Chief Wahoo, meaning they will continue to sell it on a limited basis in Northeast Ohio.

The Indians have worn some form of Chief Wahoo on their uniform for over 70 years. Perhaps it was a time for a change, but it will be interesting to see what kind of staying power The Chief has among the team’s fans over the next five to 10 years.
