Report: Atlanta Braves discussing the use of the 'Tomahawk Chop', not name change

Report: Atlanta Braves discussing the use of the 'Tomahawk Chop', not name change

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.

Nationals get snubbed once again on Sunday Night Baseball schedule

Nationals get snubbed once again on Sunday Night Baseball schedule

When ESPN released its initial Sunday Night Baseball schedule for the 2020 season, the defending champion Nationals were nowhere to be found. 

But that was a long time ago. Since the season was delayed due to coronavirus, they've had time to consider their rating-chasing actions and think hard about Washington's ommission. 

After further consideration and a newly released 10-game TV schedule, the Nationals...are once again nowhere to be found. 

Three of their division rivals (Mets, Braves, Phillies) are on the Sunday Night Baseball schedule a combined six times, with the Braves and Phillies featured on back-to-back Sunday nights. The Cubs and Cardinals as well as Yankees-Red Sox play twice on Sunday night as well.

RELATED: NATS' 2020 SCHEDULE FILLED WITH ODDITIES

In the spirit of analytics, 75% of the known Sunday Night Baseball schedule belongs to six of the 30 teams. The two final matchups have yet to be announced. 

Now, there are of course a very limited number of Sundays on the schedule this year and there's still a chance the Nats nab one of those last two games. For now however, Washington fans will just have to enjoy their team play on all but one night a week.
