CLEVELAND-- The Cleveland Indians unveiled new uniforms without the trademark Chief Wahoo logo on Monday.
All of the team's jerseys will feature the 2019 MLB All-Star Game logo on the sleeve. Cleveland is hosting the Midsummer Classic for the first time since 1997 when Sandy Alomar Jr., the current first base coach, was named the MVP.
The Tribe also introduced a new alternate home uniform option featuring a red jersey with script Indians across the chest and white pants.
"It marks just the second time in franchise history that we will be wearing red as an official uniform. The last time was in the 1970s. 1975, 1976 and 1977 will be exact," said Senior Vice President of Public Affairs Bobby DiBiasio.
The new home navy cap will have a red bill and block C. The navy uniforms with block Cleveland across the front will only be worn on the road.
Next season marks the first time in more than 70 years Chief Wahoo won’t be on team uniforms. The Indians have been phasing out the logo for years in favor of a "block C" on its batting helmets and caps.
The Indians and Major League Baseball announced in January the logo would be removed from uniforms for the 2019 season.
A limited amount of Wahoo merchandise is still available at the team shop at Progressive Field.
