Cleveland Guardians realign marquee sign at Progressive Field

The team officially switched its name to the Cleveland Guardians back on Nov. 19.

CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Guardians marquee sign at the corner of Carnegie and Ontario is being readjusted Tuesday by Brilliant Electric Sign Company after it was determined it needed to be realigned.

3News had a camera there to capture the moment crews were working with the sign around 9:30 a.m.

The update comes as the Guardians continue their transformation to reflect the new team name. It’s a process that started weeks ago -- including the removal of the “Script Indians” logo from the scoreboard, which began back on Nov. 2.

The Cleveland Guardians officially switched to the new team name on Nov. 19 by changing their social media accounts and unleashing new merchandise.

Just last week, meanwhile, Cleveland City Council approved a $117 million contribution toward the $435 million deal to update Progressive Field. The renovation package for Progressive Field is tied to a lease extension that will keep the Guardians playing in the city through 2036.
