Baseball-Cleveland baseball team to change name to Guardians

REUTERS: Cleveland's Major League Baseball team will change its name to the Guardians from the Indians starting next season, it announced on Twitter on Friday.

In December, the team started a search for a new name to replace one that was criticized by Native Americans, who consider it disparaging. The team had been called the Indians for more than 100 years.
