Braves' tomahawk chop gesture a matter for Atlanta's Native American community, commissioner Rob Manfred says

HOUSTON -- Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred is deferring to the Native American community in and around Atlanta on whether it's appropriate for the Braves to be encouraging the tomahawk chop gesture when the World Series is there for Games 3-5 this weekend.

The Braves have done a phenomenal job with the Native American community.".

Manfred said the Native American community in the Atlanta region "is wholly supportive of the Braves program, including the chop.

Manfred's answer on a possible nickname change for Atlanta was the same as it was for the chop: This is a local issue.

"Way before this became an issue, Atlanta cultivated a relationship with the Native American community which was very helpful in terms of making decisions like the two that have been raised.".

Manfred was asked whether his opinion might change if Native American communities outside of the Atlanta market took issue with the gesture.

"We don't market our game on a nationwide basis," Manfred said.

Atlanta will host the middle games of the World Series just months after Manfred moved the All-Star Game from there to Denver due to voting rights issues in Georgia.

"We have, at this point, taken advantage of the days that we had at the All-Star Game, and we anticipate taking advantage of the days that we have leading up to and through the expiration," Clark said.

"There's going to come a point in time where the pressure to make change is going to be sufficient," Manfred said
