Didi Gregorius laughs off having name misspelled on ballpark promo (pic)
Didi Gregorius could do nothing but laugh off how his name was misspelled on a promotion displayed at Yankee Stadium for his upcoming Bat Day on May 12.
“Yeah, I know,” Gregorius said of the gaffe, via NJ.com. “I saw that. What can I do?”
During Tuesday’s nationally broadcasted 8-3 victory over the Minnesota Twins, a sign behind home plate promoting Gregorius’ bat day had one glaring error.

A close inspection of the sign showed that Gregorius’ name had been spelled “Gregious.”
“I can’t fix that,” Gregorious said of the misspelling.
The mistake did not seem to bother the Yankees shortstop, as he went 3-for-4 on the day with a 401-foot home run and three RBI in Tuesday’s win.
The Yankees’ huge goof aside, Gregorius is off to a monster start so far this season, slashing at a .347/.442/.787 clip with eight home runs and 27 RBI.
With those kind of numbers, the only thing left to say about the misspelling of Gregorius’ name is that is was a pretty “e-gregious” error by the Yankees.
