Baseball team gave away 15,000 misspelled jerseys

Why a Baseball Team Gave Away 15,000 Jerseys

DENVER -- The Colorado Rockies gave away 15,000 Troy Tulowitzki jerseys to fans at the team's game Saturday against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

KDVR reports: Unfortunately, in true Rockies fashion, Tulo's name was misspelled on every single one of them.

The jerseys left out the second T, making the club's star player's name "Tulowizki." Fans' responses online ranged from good-natured jokes to outright anger.

The Rockies issued a statement about the shirt misspelling:

"The Colorado Rockies offer our sincere apologies to the fans for the misspelling of the Troy Tulowitzki King Soopers jersey that was distributed tonight. The Rockies would also like to apologize to longtime corporate partner King Soopers, who was not involved in the production of the jerseys.

Acknowledging that many fans came to the game for the jersey, rather than disappoint them, we decided to go ahead and hand them out.

We have made plans to reproduce the jersey and fans wishing to exchange will be able to do so at a future date (TBD) in September at Coors Field or the Rockies Dugout Stores. In addition, fans exchanging the jersey will receive a complimentary ticket to a future game in 2014 or 2015."

What's even sadder is the Rockies organization actually handed them out ! But what do you expect from the worst owner / franchise and team in baseball ??? Disgraceful, and, especially to the game !

Considering the record of AOL/HP regarding spelling, they have no cause to poke fun at the spelling errors of others.

The dumbing down of America is apalling. How many errors of punctuation, grammar and spelling can one make in one or two short paragraphs? 4th graders should know the difference between their, there and they're.

AOL/Huff has only run this story for days now. This is typical when you want to stay away from the real news.

Sounds like the mispelled ones may become collectors items since exchanging them for a correct one will also include a free game ticket. At least they didn't mispell Colorado or Rockies. :-)

Anger over a free jersey? Don't accept it and be happy. I'll bet the one expressing "outrage" will not trade in their defective jersey for one with the correct spelling.
