I think it's been a while since I've really paid attention to baseball :/
SBC Park, Pacific Bell Park (PacBell Park) for AT&T Park
Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, Network Associates Coliseum, McAfee Coliseum, Overstock.com Coliseum for O.co Coliseum
Anaheim Stadium, Edison International Field (of Anaheim) for Angel Stadium
Bank One Ballpark for Chase Field
The Ballpark in Arlington, Ameriquest Field in Arlington, Rangers Ballpark in Arlington for Globe Life Park in Arlington
Jacobs Field for Progressive Field
Comiskey Park for US Cellular Field
SkyDome for Rogers Centre
And that is just for stadiums that have only been renamed and not replaced entirely.
Athletics: Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum
Mariners: T-Mobile Park
Giants: Oracle Park
And you know how you know Chief Wahoo WAS racist? Imagine a comparable version for literally any other minority group. What would an African-American, Latino, Jewish, Chinese, etc-version look like? It’d be horrifyingly racist.
I myself am Progressive and find Chief Wahoo to have been very racist. However, the NAME Cleveland Indians wasn’t racist, so them’s recently announced plan to change it bothers me as a baseball purist. The Washington Redskins HAD to change their name (it’s super racist unless it’s referring to potatoes), even if the mascot wasn’t racist; an offensive name and inoffensive symbol is the exact opposite of the Indians’ situation.
I just think changing the team’s name is a huge overreaction and for a team that has been named ‘Indians’ for over a century, it’s pretty sad.
If a big, evil company like Google had a sense of humor they would purchase the naming rights to every stadium they could, until every single team played at the "Googleplex".
