Indians Announce 2019 Uniform Changes; The End for Chief Wahoo

Chief Wahoo – it’s been real.

The Indians announced on Friday morning that they will be announcing on Monday ‘uniform changes’ for the 2019 season. Those changes will include ‘a new uniform option as well as small enhancements to the existing options for the 2019 season.’

Let the speculation begin as to what the team is going to do in terms of the new elements for the uniforms, but based on all that has been said about it for the last year, this should mark the end of any sort of logo of Chief Wahoo on the teams’ uniforms.

It was back on January 29th of this year that it was announced that the team would be removing Chief Wahoo on their unis for 2019 and beyond.

The Chief Wahoo logo, which was created in 1946 by Walter Goldbach, has been the source of great controversy over the past few years, and some groups have been calling for it to be removed and even for the team to be re-named.

Fans are already guessing about what type of changes are going to come on Monday, and here’s some fan reaction as to what different looks we will see in 2019.
