Indians adjust uniform plan for 2017

December 15th, 2016

The Indians have altered their uniform plan for next season, but they have not phased out their Chief Wahoo logo.
Chief Wahoo will remain on the Indians' caps when they wear their home white uniforms as well as their road alternate uniforms (navy jersey and gray pants). Cleveland's primary road uniform is also unchanged, as the Tribe will continue to wear gray jerseys, gray pants and blue caps with a red block "C" logo.
Cleveland will no longer wear its cream-colored home alternate uniforms. Instead, the Tribe will effectively have one alternate jersey, wearing navy tops at home and on the road. However, the Indians will keep the red caps with the blue block "C" that were previously matched with the cream-colored alternates. Those caps will be worn as part of their 2017 home alternate uniforms.
Here is a look at the Indians' uniforms in 2016 and their planned looks in 2017, per the MLB style guide.

The Chief Wahoo logo will remain on the left sleeve of all four of the Indians' jerseys in 2017. In 2014, the Indians made the block "C" their primary logo, replacing Chief Wahoo. During the World Series, Commissioner Rob Manfred said he planned to speak with Indians CEO Paul Dolan "at an appropriate time" to discuss the Chief Wahoo logo.
