While there has been an abundance of conversations surrounding a name change for the Washington Redskins and Cleveland Indians, the Atlanta Braves are another team that is evaluating some key facets of the organization.
While the Braves have no intention of changing the name, according to The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal, there could be some changes within the ballpark.
"The Braves do not intend to change their name, though discussions about the team's use of the 'Tomahawk Chop' are ongoing," sources told Rosenthal.
"The Atlanta Braves honor, support, and value the Native American community. That will never change," the team said in a statement.
The "Chop," which has been a part of Braves' home games since the 1990s, has received criticism in the past as insensitive to native groups. Over the past several years, it has become a common routine at the renamed Truist Park.
