Cleveland Indians Away Jerseys in Home Opener Honor Minority Groups

The Cleveland Indians opened their baseball season with a message. On Friday, the team played their first game at home wearing their road jerseys with "Cleveland" displayed on the front.

Shortstop Francisco Lindor says the team is calling attention "to the whole entire world that change is due."

Earlier this month, the organization said they're considering changing the team's nickname following protests concerning systemic racism and police brutality.

And from All-Star MVP to ace, Shane Bieber's only getting better.

Bieber struck out 14 over six scoreless innings as the Indians took off on a 60-game season sprint by beating the Kansas City Royals 2-0 in their delayed home opener on Friday night.
