It’s important to understand that we have 30 markets around the country,” Manfred continued. “They aren’t all the same… The Native American community in that region is wholly supportive of the Braves program, including ‘The Chop.’ 为了我, that’s kind of the end of the story. In that market, we’re taking into account the Native American community.

早在七月, the Cleveland Indians announced that they will be changing their name to the Guardians following the conclusion of the 2021 美国职业棒球大联盟赛季.

Cleveland team owner Paul Dolan said that the name is no longer acceptable. It will be interesting to see if the Braves follow suit in the near future.

Before the start of the 2020 季节, the Braves removed theChop On” 雕像. The team said at the time it would not consider a name change either and look to see whether the tomahawk chop would further be permitted at Truist Park. 的 亚特兰大宪法杂志 noted during the home opener that fans were encouraged to do it.

We don’t market our game on a nationwide basis. Ours is an everyday game,” Manfred said. “You’ve gotta sell tickets every single day to the fans in that market. And there are all sorts of differences between the regions in terms of how the teams are marketed.
