The signs behind the plate can be a prime piece of advertising real estate at Yankee Stadium, but this time it featured an unfortunate error involving New York Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius’ last name on Tuesday.
During the team’s game against the Minnesota Twins, a banner scrolled by with a promotional advertisement for “Didi Gregious Bat Day” on May 12:

This season Gregorius is slugging an MLB-high .740 and is tied for sixth with seven home runs. Put some respect on the man’s name.
