[Baseball’s Indians, on scoreboards] read 18-Across in Monday’s puzzle, for the answer CLE. That’s short for “Cleveland,” of course, and it’s just one of many pieces of scoreboard shorthand you often see in puzzles.
The other main ones from baseball that you’ll encounter in puzzles are NYY for the Yankees, LAA for the Angels, and STL for the Cardinals. Of course, you won’t find many mentions of the Mariners (SEA), Athletics (OAK), Or Pirates (PIT) using this type of clue, since their team abbreviations also happen to be everyday words that can be easily clued on their own.
In football, you’ll often see NYG for the Giants and JAX for the Jaguars, and frequent NBA mentions in crosswords include LAL for the Lakers, OKC for the Thunder, and PHX for the Suns.
