The Cleveland...Baseball Team?

Sony better make sure they get this changed for Show 21. Iím sure they will since there is still is plenty of time.

Wonder what name they will go with? Hoping itís Cleveland Spiders.

Maybe they pay homage to the Rock and Roll HoF and go with the Cleveland Rockers.

At least with MLB The Show 20 you can easily replace the Indians name and logo yourself. They likely will return to the Cleveland Spiders name since there is history there with it. Can't wait until people make a big deal out of this, like it's just a team name, calm down.

As for The Show if Cleveland did change the name in time for the '21 season, SDS could luck out and they choose a name that's already in the game. The generic dialog wouldn't need any adjustments then.
Worst case scenario for audio if they came up with something crazy, the just edit the audio file from saying "Indians" to just saying "Cleveland" in all cases. While certainly not perfect it would work at launch and maybe patched later? I dont see new audio work being done with all of the new lockdowns and such.

Hopefully they leave the the old uniforms in the game as throwbacks. I always switch to the Rick Vaughn era uniforms when I play them

Iíve honestly always loved the smiling Indian logo. I think itís one of the coolest logos sports. I can see why fans of the team are mad to see the name and logo go. That being said itís clearly offensive to a certain group of people so they have no choice but to dump it. What would your choice be to replace the name? Spiders? Rockers? Kings (named after LeBron lol)
