Get me one of these now.  Biggest Atlanta Braves fan you'll ever meet right here and I love the new hats.  Check out the history of the “Screaming Indian” logo via talking chop. “The Braves franchise began using the logo in 1954 while in Milwaukee; using it first as an alternate logo, then adding it as the sleeve patch, changing the sleeve patch from the Indian with the headdress to the new ‘Screaming Indian.’ The logo was originally an outline style logo, then changed to a full color logo, then became the outline style logo again in 1972, the year that the logo actually disappeared from the uniform. The Screaming Indian disappeared altogether from the Braves (in any official capacity) in 1990, when the logo became the word ‘Braves’ with a tomahawk underneath. The Screaming Indian logo was discarded in part due to pressure from Native American groups who opposed the use of Native American imagery on sports uniforms.” Honestly, this is one thing that I actually want someone to prove me wrong about.  I have respect for the Indians and think it shouldn't be on the cap if they take offense, I just have no idea why they do.  Someone fill me in.   Just looks like a cool picture of a Native American screaming to me. Almost even a tribute to the old ways of the world. Check out our Home Page for more stories and follow us on Twitter and Facebook
