CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) –
Although the Cleveland Indians will abandon Chief Wahoo on its uniforms next season, a new poll just released by the Baldwin Wallace University Community Research Institute shows people in Northeast Ohio are calling foul ball.
The online poll had 518 responses from seven Northeast Ohio counties including Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain, Medina, Portage, and Summit.
The survey made a match-up between Chief Wahoo and the block ‘C’ that will be used by the Tribe and apparently Chief Wahoo still has the stuff.
First they were asked about the image of Chief Wahoo:
“This logo reflects the heritage of the Indians”
- Disagree 23.55%
- Neither 16.60%
- Agree 59.85%
“I feel a strong positive emotional connection to this logo”
- Disagree 23.75%
- Neither 18.34%
- Agree 57.92%
“This logo makes me proud of the Indians”
- Disagree 18.73%
