The Colorado Rockies attempted to attract fans to the ballpark last night by giving away t-shirt jersey replicas of their star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki. Unfortunately, someone forgot to get the correct spelling of Tulowitzki, so fans all received t-shirts with his name spelled wrong. The Rockies released a statement trying to correct the mistake, but if you want to get fans hyped about the team, it’s always good to at least know how to spell the players’ names correctly.
Our sincere apologies to the fans for the misspelling of the Troy Tulowitzki King Soopers jersey that was distributed tonight.
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.
