The Atlanta Braves are bringing back what some call the “screaming Indian” logo for their batting practice caps in 2013. Every few years, all 30 Major League Baseball teams get new designs for their batting practice caps, but for some reason the Braves have decided to go with questionable imagery that they used from 1967 to 1989.

  • Who are we offending now? Get over it
  • WHY DO WE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE LET THE MEDIA CONTROL OUR THINKING, HAD THIS NOT BEEN BROUGHT UP WOULD ANYONE PAYED ATTENTION TO THE PRACTICE HATS???? HELLO WAKE UP
  • Maybe they can change the franchise to the Atlanta Magnolias.
    Who could be offended by a Magnolia tree?
  • THE ATLANTA MAGNOLIAS HAS A NICE RING TO IT THEN THAQT EVERYONE WOULD BE HAPPY. NOT
  • As I sit here typing* I can look up over my computer desk and see a *Screaming Indian*on my Braves Pennant that was given to me in 1948 when I went to my first *Braves Game* at Braves Field in Boston. My Dad bought me the Pennant as a remembrance. In 1975 I moved to Atlanta. I love the Braves. The day the music died in Atlanta was when Bobby Cox retired.
  • Get over it. If it wasn't for the IDIOTIC media bringing up stuff like this we wouldn't even care or pay attention. Besides what NATIVE AMERICAN tribe are they OFFENDING NOW ????????Did ANYBODY complaine yet ?????

Pastornicky moves down Braves' depth chart

Tyler Pastornicky began last season as the Braves' starting shortstop. Now his future in Atlanta appears clouded at best.

Chipper Jones Tweets Funny Picture in His Garage
