When Giants reserve Eugenio Velez took the field for a double switch in the seventh inning at Houston on Wednesday night, he apparently had no idea his road grays read: "San Francicso."
The Associated Press reached Velez by phone on the Giants team bus as it rolled to the airport. "No, no, I didn't know," Velez said. "That's the first I've heard."
Everyone else's jerseys were fine. Apparently, nobody on the team noticed Velez's, or if someone did, he didn't speak to Velez about it.
"Incredible!" the Dominican said in Spanish.
Majestic, the athletic wear company that manufactures all of MLB's jerseys, apparently learned nothing from the uproariously funny Washington "Natinals" debacle of last season.
Then, a missing "o." Now, transposed letters...what's next?
The Giants, by the way, say the bug will be fixed by the team's next road trip. Coincidentally, they won the game 10-4. Maybe they should leave it like it is...
