Atlanta Braves Make Major Changes as Political Correctness Comes Calling

The move comes just a week after the NFL’s Washington-based team announced a major rebranding.

The 2020 baseball season has begun, as strange as that sounds.

Yes, games are occurring, but they are sans fans, with several major rules changes, and not whole lot of traveling between stadiums.  Heck, at this point, we’re even down a team thanks to Canada’s recent ruling on the ability of the Toronto Blue Jays to participate.

Outside of the coronavirus pandemic’s impact on the sport, there seems to be some other major changes coming for the national pastime, some of which will certainly arrive at the behest of political correctness.

On Sunday, the Atlanta Braves quietly removed their “Chop On” statue from near the third-base entrance at Truist Park.

The Braves have, of course, been under fire for years for their tomahawk chop fan chant. At various times the team has attempted to discourage fans from using the chant, but it has been part of Braves fandom since the 1990s.

Recently, the team announced that it intends to keep its name, but it is reviewing whether or not to ban the chant officially.

Perhaps as part of its re-evaluation about the chop, the team has eliminated its wood and metal “Chop On” sculpture.

The move comes just a week after the Washington Redskins NFL franchise announced that they will be changing their name and logo, which was considered by some to be offensive to Native Americans.  The team has not yet announced their chosen replacement name, as their legal team feverishly works to secure copyrights and other intellectual properties.
