Note to all MLB teams: Start proofreading the backs of jerseys. We have featured a number of jersey mishaps here on LBS over the past few years, but this could be the first time we’ve shown you two of them on back-to-back days in the same league. Unfortunately for Twins reliever Jeff Manship, he had to take the field wearing his screwed up jersey on Wednesday rather than simply see it hanging in the pro shop with a price tag on it.

As you can see from the screenshot above that @cjzero shared with us, the Twins accidentally spelled Manship’s last name “Mansihp” on the back of his No. 49 jersey. According to Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com, Manship said after the game that he had no clue the jersey was misspelled when he took the mound. Bollinger also pointed out that this isn’t the first time his last name has been butchered. Check out this screenshot from spring training:

Is Manship really that difficult of a name to spell and remember? Jarrod Saltalamacchia has never had a problem, but maybe the people making the jerseys pay extra attention when it’s such a challenging last name. Jeff pitched a scoreless in the Twins’ 4-2 win. Talk about a lack of mutual respect.
