(FOX NEWS) — The Cleveland Indians’ season ended Monday after a loss to the Houston Astros eliminated them from the American League Division Series, and with that came the end of Chief Wahoo, the club’s controversial mascot.

The exit occurred on Columbus Day, or what many communities alternatively call Indigenous Peoples’ Day.

The Indians announced in January they would remove the Chief Wahoo emblem from jerseys and caps before the 2019 season, bowing to pressure from critics who have called it culturally offensive.
