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."
