Where to Buy Atlanta World Series Baseball Jerseys, Hats, Shirts, More MLB Fan Gear Without Offensive Team Name, Featured Mascot
Atlanta’s Major League Baseball team reached the World Series for the first time in more than 20 years. Many fans are jumping on the bandwagon or rediscovering a long-lost love for their former team. If you’re one of those fans, you might be looking to kit yourself out with some new fan gear to wear during the World Series against the Houston Astros, or hopefully rock as you celebrate after their big win if things go Atlanta’s way.
Despite the excitement, some fans are still upset that the Atlanta franchise has yet to change their team name and mascot, which is widely seen as offensive to Native Americans. The Oregonian/OregonLive has a policy that it does not use the team names of sports teams that have mascots or names that may be considered derogatory to Native Americans. Washington’s football team moved away from its offensive team name in 2020. And Cleveland’s MLB team officially announced it was changing its team name to “Guardians” earlier this year.
