Apparently, typos are all the rage among major league baseball players. Check out this one, fashionably sported by Minnesota Twins’ shortstop, Adam Everett:
According to MLB.com, Everett was heading for the plate when the Twins’ equipment manager pulled him aside:
Everett said he was told there was something wrong with his jersey.
“I’m looking down, like, ‘Oh my gosh, do I have the wrong jersey on?’ ” Everett said.
Not the wrong jersey, the wrong spelling.
The front of Everett’s jersey read “MINNESTOA.”
Check out the whole story, including a short clip of Everett at bat. Evidently, Everett was allowed to carry on like this until the fifth inning. The typo was spotted by a former Twins’ player who, after “double-checking the spelling twice” (definitely want to make sure), texted one of the visiting clubhouse attendants to alert them.
