MLB Shop Removes Chief Wahoo Hat With Jackie Robinson Patch After Backlash

The 2018 MLB season will mark the final time the Cleveland Indians will rock Chief Wahoo as a logo on their apparel after the MLB convinced the franchise that the logo was no longer appropriate and just down right racist. Unfortunately, that logo reared its ugly head after the league began selling Indians hats with the logo on the front and a Jackie Robinson patch on the side.

Robinson, the man who broke the racism barrier around the sport, being put on a cap with a logo that symbolizes racism was not a great idea. An uproar began on social media.

Because of that uproar, the MLB shop has since removed the hat from their site. No statements have been issued.
