Cleveland Indians look into changing name amid pressure

CLEVELAND (AP) They've been known as the Cleveland Indians since 1915. Those days could be over.

Amid new pressure sparked by a national movement to correct racial wrongdoings, the Indians said Friday night they will review their long-debated nickname which has been in place for 105 years.

"We are committed to making a positive impact in our community and embrace our responsibility to advance social justice and equality," the team said in a statement that came just hours after the NFL's Washington Redskins announced a similar move. "Our organization fully recognizes our team name is among the most visible ways in which we connect with the community."
