The Cleveland Guardians are an American professional Baseball team located in Cleveland. The team started its franchise as the Grand Rapid Rustlers in 1894 but relocated to Cleveland in 1900. During the team’s transfer to Cleveland, they got renamed Cleveland Lake Shores. After the 1914 season, the club’s owner asked baseball players to choose a name and they settled for the name Cleveland Indians.

In mid-2021, the management of the club announced a change in name to the club. The reason was, it was believed the name was disrespectful to the indigene; Indians of the land. The name was officially changed on November 19th, 2021 to Cleveland Guardians.
