MLB: Good news! Cleveland would already have a new name for the team

MLB Good news Cleveland would already have a new name

In the last hours it was announced that Cleveland would already have a new name for the franchise of the MLB after months looking to replace the one they had previously. The change is due to the request to eradicate names of sports teams that refer to Native American tribes in a manner considered derogatory.

This Thursday, July 22, it was reported that the Cleveland organization had already decided what the new name of the MLB franchise will be, but that so far there is no date for its disclosure.

Paul Dolan, owner of the team, reported since December 2020 that they would change their name and that the goal was to have a new nickname for the 2022 Major League Season, for which there are still a few months to go.

The Ohio ‘Tribe’ would have had a hard time choosing a new name, since last June they announced that they were working for it and had a list of more than a thousand candidate names.

The intention to change the name was given as a result of the social movements that have been carried out to avoid nicknames that make derogatory reference to the Native Americans of the United States territory.

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, starting a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is managed mainly by men. Degree in Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball from the Mexican Baseball League (LMB ), Liga Mexicana del Pacífico (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Rey Series. I have done work for social networks such as the coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social media, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was in a game of Lions of Yucatán, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team of my loves and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, in the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from ‘minute one’ and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
