Unlike sports teams under fire for using American Indian names and stereotypes, the Spokane Indians baseball team is closely allied with the Spokane Tribe of Indians. When the team unveiled a new logo in 2006, it included an alternate version with “Spokane Indians Baseball Club” written in Salish, the tribe’s native language.

Now they’re making those ties more visible — the Salish logo will be the one featured most prominently on the team’s home uniforms this coming season.
