The Cleveland Indians Decide NOT To Offend People On The Fourth Of July
At least not with their uniforms.
Earlier this week, images of the special Fourth of July Stars and Stripes caps for Major League Baseball were released. Among them, was this, umm, questionable design for the Cleveland Indians.
Not surprisingly, people weren't really on board with the whole idea of a Native American covered in the stars of the American flag, and a source for Major League Baseball is now claiming that New Era released the wrong design, and the Indians will actually be wearing a cap with their alternative logo instead.
While the block-C design is obviously way less offensive, the damage is already done. I mean, the first one was a pretty striking image. If you were an artist who came up with the idea, you'd be pretty happy with yourself.
