I attended the Cleveland Indian’s opener and found a few things more disturbing than the heartbreaking loss. First, I find an even newer logo to (try) to replace our beloved Chief Wahoo – a block letter “C,” more fitting for the Cincinnati Reds or Colorado Rockies. As if that stylized “I” that looks more like a “J” wasn’t bad enough.
Then, I see this white monstrosity towering over the right field seating: a wind power generating contraption. Let me get this straight: The giant, colorful likeness of Chief Wahoo which once stood high atop Municipal Stadium was banished to the Western Reserve Historical Society Museum because, we were told, it didn’t blend well enough with the architecture of the new ballpark. But this wind catcher that looks more like a prop from a science fiction movie is not out of place with the structural aesthetics of Progressive Field?
