Baseball season is right around the corner, which means it’s officially Hype Video Season.

There is no official indication as to whether #RallyTogether is officially superseded by #OurTribe. To the author, however, it doesn’t make much sense for the Indians to kickoff their 2020 promotional season with #OurTribe unless it is slated to be the keystone of their digital marketing efforts.
The video hit the internet at 9:00 am initially, but was quickly pulled before being reposted. That may or may not be related to the following error:

Reactions to #OurTribe
Reactions to the news from Fans were generally positive. #RallyTogether is still connected to the 2016 and 2017 seasons for many fans. Calls increased during the previous two years to move on to a new motto. We came up with our own suggestion, but some kind of move felt inevitable.
