Rockies misspell Tulowitzki on promotional giveaway

The Colorado Rockies honoured shortstop Troy Tulowitzki with a Tulowitzki replica jersey giveaway on Saturday at Coors Field. Like most giveaways at MLB games, the first 15,000 fans in attendance received the replica jersey. It's a pretty sweet promotion, only someone forgot to double check the spelling of "Tulowitzki" before making the shirts:

The Rockies said they noticed the spelling error before handing out the jerseys, but they didn't want to upset any fans who might have bought tickets primarily because of the promotion, so they went ahead with it anyways.

However, they do plan on remaking the jersey with the correct last name on the back before the end of the season. They will also allow fans who received the "Tulowizki" shirts to exchange it for a "Tulowitzki" one.The fans who decide to exchange their shirt will also receive a ticket to a future game either this season or next.

Tulowitzki was placed on the 15-day disabled list earlier this week and with the Rockies in a slump as of late, a lot of fans grabbed their free "Tulowizki" shirts and took off.
