Cleveland’s Major League Baseball team has become a laughing stock online after they announced a team name change.
In order to appease the woke warriors, the Cleveland Indians will soon be called the Cleveland Guardians.
The ballclub announced the name change Friday with a video on Twitter narrated by actor Tom Hanks, ending months of internal discussions triggered by a national reckoning by institutions and teams to permanently drop logos and names considered racist.

The name change is effective at the end of the 2021 season.
Cleveland's new name was inspired by the large landmark stone edifices -- referred to as traffic guardians -- that flank both ends of the Hope Memorial Bridge, which connects downtown to Ohio City.
Fans on Twitter have had some pretty clever responses to the news. Here are a few of my favorites:
The Cleveland Guardians.
