Majestic apologizes for misspelling

|
WASHINGTON -- This past Friday against the Marlins, Adam Dunn and Ryan Zimmerman were seen wearing home uniforms with the word "Nationals" misspelled. The "O" was missing from the jersey. The players changed into jerseys with the right spelling during the game.

When the Nationals opened the boxes from Majestic Athletic earlier in the day, the team just looked at the back of the jerseys to make sure the spellings of the player's last names were correct. The club assumed its name was correct in the front of the jerseys.

On Tuesday, Majestic Athletic apologized for the mistake.

"All of us at Majestic Athletic want to apologize to both the Washington Nationals and Major League Baseball for accidentally omitting the 'O' in two Nationals jerseys last week," said Jim Pisani, president of Majestic Athletic. "We take 100 percent responsibility for this event, and we regret any embarrassment for the Nationals organization, players and fans.

"Outfitting all 30 teams and 750 players is a duty we take very seriously. Majestic has been trusted on-field for over 25 years. Based on our history, clubhouse managers expect that every new uniform from Majestic is perfect. For the Nationals, this time we did not meet this standard."
