WMBL franchise in Swift Current will be known now as the "57's"

A baseball team in Swift Current, Sask., is the latest to dump ``Indians'' as its nickname.

The Western Major Baseball League's 2016 champions will now be known as the Swift Current 57s.

On its website, the team says the new name honours the 57 seasons they played as the Swift Current Indians.
The team says its re-naming committee received a lot of passionate opinions from members of the community as well as former players, coaches, board members and volunteers.
It says the new name is a tribute ``to each person whose various influences have helped shape the organization.''
