Which professional sports team announced they are changing their name to the Guardians?
Kansas City Chiefs
Known as the Indians since 1915, Cleveland’s Major League Baseball team will next be called the Guardians. The ballclub announced the name change last month with a video on Twitter narrated by actor Tom Hanks, capping months of internal discussions sparked by a national call for clubs to permanently drop names and logos considered racist. Cleveland’s new name was inspired by the large landmark stone edifices — known as traffic guardians — which flank both ends of the Hope Memorial Bridge, in Cleveland. The name change will become effective at the end of the 2021 season.
The Answer: The correct answer is Cleveland Indians.
