During Saturday night's TBS broadcast of Game 1 of the ALCS, New York Yankees pitcher Andy Pettitte was identified as one of only six players in MLB history to play in the postseason before age 24 and after age 40. Also on that list were Chipper Jones, Eddie Murray, Greg Maddux, Rickie Henderson, and Willie Mays.
Unfortunately, the graphic displayed by TBS misspelled the name of arguably the most legendary player of the group as "Willie Mayes". Just terrible.
That's bad enough, but here's another goof by TBS graphics that could be worse: referring to Cal Ripken Jr. as "Carl Ripken Jr.", even though Ripken is currently working for TBS as an announcer.
These are Baseball Hall of Famers, some of the best players to ever play the game, and you can't spell their names right? That's an absolutely horrendous job by TBS. Come on, guys, step up your game.
