Per Paul Lukas of the Uni Watch Blog, the Cleveland Indians have changed their “primary” logo to the Block C that has adorned navy, red and special edition hats over the last several seasons.

Lukas, who has been one of the web’s more outspoken anti-Chief Wahoo voices, does add that the highly discussed cartoon logo will still be on Tribe’s jersey sleeves as well as the home cap, leaving us wondering exactly what—if anything—the difference is between this and seasons past. This appears to merely be a semantic adjustment made wherein the Indians’ television and promotions (and website-based advertising) will feature the “Block C” on a national level rather than Chief Wahoo.
Update: The Indians tell WFNY that their usage of all of their logos—Block C, Chief Wahoo, and the script “Indians”—will remain identical to 2013 and that all three are featured within the 2014 MLB stylebook.
