It has been made official that the Cleveland Indians is changing its name to the Cleveland Guardians.
The question several fans have been wondering after that bombshell of an announcement is whether or not the team’s mascot Slider will remain as part of the new look.
Those involved with what is still the Indians and what will soon become the Guardians have an answer.
From WJW Fox 8 News Cleveland:
Officials with the baseball club confirmed that Slider will continue to be the team’s mascot after the name change.
Slider made his debut in 1990 and was inducted into the Mascot Hall of Fame in 2008.
So rest assure Indians/Guardians fans. Our favorite fuzzy and adorable mascot is not going anywhere!
Despite the rest of the U.S. not sharing the same love we have for Slider, along with PlayUSA voting him the worse mascot in Major League Baseball, it appears he will be entertaining fans at Progressive Field in Downtown Cleveland’s Gateway District for a long time.
