ESPN screwed up an opportunity with Hank Aaron in the booth on Sunday night baseball. The Home Run King was in attendance for the Mets and Braves game in Atlanta and paid the booth a visit.
During the visit the showed a picture of Jackie Robinson standing next to a Braves player. ESPN assumed the player was Hank Aaron, it was not.
The black and white photo shows Jackie Robinson standing next to Boston Braves player Sam Jethroe.

That’s a pretty bad mistake by ESPN and their seemingly endless reach and budget. This probably cost some poor intern in his 20s their job. All around not a great look for the worldwide leader in sports.
