Cleveland Guardians Tom Hanks Unveils Cleveland Baseball Team’s New Name.
Cleveland Indians had previously announced that they were changing their name, which came after the Washington Redskins ditched their nickname to become the Washington soccer team.
Therefore, critics argue that the names, especially the Redskins and the old “Wahoo” logo of the Indians, are offensive to Native Americans. Various colleges, universities, and high schools have also changed some nicknames related to indigenous people, ethnicities, and past stereotypes and in recognition of the historical mistreatment of Native Americans.
However, the Major League Baseball team debuted the Guardians name on Friday. The nickname is related to the old Traffic Warden statues on a Cleveland bridge.
The new name did not impress Trump, who has had political feuds with other prominent sports figures and institutions, such as LeBron James and the National Football League. Trump had previously shown interest in owning an NFL team and owned the USFL’s New Jersey Generals.
For this segment to work, we need to agree on just a few things. First off, we need to agree that Cleveland, Ohio, is a great American city full of great Americans. I mean, for starters, they had to put the rock and roll hall of fame somewhere.
However, they chose the new name for Cleveland. We also need to agree that our country is changing. And we need to agree that tom hanks, as vanity fair wrote today, represents, quote, all that is still right and good about America.
At the same time, you see vanity fair wrote about Tom Hanks today because Tom Hanks is a Cleveland Indians fan. And veteran of Cleveland summer Shakespeare theater company as a young actor.

However, Tom Hanks gave us all the following a video on behalf of the Cleveland Indians announcing a significant change for the team and that city.
We are a city on the rise. We are forging into the future from our iron-out past. We are a city of fire and water, of trees and towers built through generations of blue collars and the brightest scholars and all of those who have worked harder.
We hold tight to our roots and set our sights on tomorrow. And this is our team that has stood with our city for more than a century from old municipal to the corner of carneggy.
Moreover, it is the team that has seen its progress and prosperity. Its history flows like a river through the heart of this city. History has given us miraculous moments, moments that span years and others 22 games.
However, we can not forget the moments that broke barriers and moments that broke hearts. Moments that prove this is more than a game.
In the meantime, we remember those moments as we move forward with change. You see, it’s always been Cleveland that’s the best part of our name. And now it’s time to unite as one family, one community, to build the next era for this team and this city.
to keep watch and guard what makes this game the greatest, to come together and welcome all who want to join us. We are loyal and proud, and resilient. We protect what we’ve earned and always defend it. Together we stand with all who understand what it means to be born and built from the land.
Because this is a city we love and the game we believe in our heart, we are all together and are all Cleveland guardians.
Right on cue, Donald Trump branded the name change a disgrace and said, quote, the angriest people about it are the many Indians of our country.
However, they get their name from the giant guardian statues at the hope memorial bridge that crosses the Cuyahoga River and is the gateway to the stadium.
