Jim Thome’s plaque at the Baseball Hall of Fame won’t include the Chief Wahoo logo when he’s inducted in July, the Hall of Fame announced today.
Thome played with the Indians from 1991-2002, and again in 2011.
Instead, the block C logo the Indians have used more recently will be included.

In January, the Indians announced they would remove Chief Wahoo from their uniforms after the upcoming season.
“I know my decision would be to wear the ‘C,’ because I think it’s the right thing to do and I fully support the way the Indians, through this week, have done the decision that they’ve done,” Thome said to Indians reporter Jordan Bastian.
