There has been no pressure placed on Atlanta towards changing its nickname or banning the Tomahawk Chop by its fans, MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred said Tuesday, supporting Atlanta’s stance.

“I think it’s important to understand that we have 30 markets in the country,’’ Manfred said. “Not all are the same. The Braves have done a phenomenal job with the Native American community. The Native American community in that region is fully supportive of the Braves’ program, including the chop.

“For me, that’s kind of the end of the story.’’

Well, the story may be only beginning considering that Atlanta is now on baseball’s biggest stage, with the tomahawk chop expected to draw heavy criticism.

“Atlanta, as I’ve said before,’’ Manfred said, “they’ve done a great job with the Native Americans. I think the Native American community is the most important group to decide whether it’s appropriate or not and they have been unwaveringly supportive of the Braves.’’
