    The Atlanta Braves have removed the wooden “Chop On” sign that has stood outside Truist Field near the third-base entrance.

     

    On Sunday morning, Jeff Schultz of The Athletic shared an updated picture of the spot where the “Chop On” sign used to sit. He also shared that he reached out to the Braves about the sign. Although, he noted the team has chosen not to respond to requests for comment at this time.

    The franchise is currently involved in reviewing the “chop” celebration that fans have been doing at the stadium for years. This, amid a growing chorus of calls for the team to change its name, much like the NFL’s Washington franchise is in the process of doing right now.

    However, the Atlanta Braves have made it clear they will not be changing the name at this time. That was made clear in a letter sent to season-ticket holders, per ESPN.

    While there has been no official announcement about the “chop” celebration, one could surmise that removing the “Chop On” sign outside Truist Park indicates that could be coming soon. Expect further developments this week.
