The Cleveland Indians said Friday they’re reconsidering their nickname following the furor over the NFL Washington Redskins name.
The Braves released a statement saying the team “honors, supports, and values the Native American community. That will never change.”
The Braves said they “have much work to do on and off the field.”
The team said in recent months it has “created an even stronger bond with various Native American tribes, both regionally and nationally, on matters related to the Braves and Native American culture.”
