Cleveland baseball manager Terry Francona is in favor of the team changing the name and said “It’s time to move forward”.
The name of the Cleveland’s baseball team will be a topic of intense debate until a new name is chosen. Cleveland’s manager Terry Francona stated Sunday that he is in favor of a name change.
This is an important step in regards to renaming and rebranding the team. The fact that Terry Francona is supporting the idea of a new name should end any discussions about not changing the name.
Many names will be discussed as time moves on. From Guardians, Tribe, Spiders, and even a brief discussion about not changing anything at all. With the manager of team backing the idea of a name, the idea of standing pat with a name that is offensive seems to have no chance of happening.
