Denver, CO, United States (4E Sports) – The Colorado Rockies tried to make their fans happy giving away “Tulowizki” shirts rather than Tulowitzki, in a game against the Pirates.
Rockies tried to honor their all-star player giving away 15,000 misspelled shirt jerseys (shirseys).
According to the team, they discovered beforehand the mistake but decided to still give the shirseys away.
A number of tweets denounced the error, stating that Tulowitzki is one of the team’s prized players and the Rockies should get his name spelled correctly.
On the team’s official Facebook page, they apologized and stated they will reproduce the jerseys.
Fans may be able to get new correctly spelled ones later this year.
Also, recepients who exchange misspelled jerseys will get a complimentary ticket to future games.
Tulowitzki is a 4-time all-star, a 2-time Golden Glove Award, and a 2× Silver Slugger Award.
The 29-year-old entered the game with a .340 batting average, leading the National League and was third overall when it comes to NL home runs with 21.
