The world champion Torotno Blue Jays
When I misspell Toronto or even my own name (it's happened) I usually have a chance to go back and fix things before I look ridiculous. Unfortunately for Wilson Sporting Goods, the Toronto Blue Jays' uniform manufacturer, there was no going back once Joe Carter took the field against the Texas Rangers in July 1994 with "TOROTNO" printed on his chest.
It wasn't until the sixth inning that someone on the Jays team noticed the typo. Carter left the field and redressed in a uniform he had worn during the all-star game.
To top it off, the team was handed one of its biggest defeats of the season that night in Arlington, falling 7-3.
Post match, frustrated by the loss, Carter wasn't willing to discuss the goof.
"Go talk to somebody else about the uniform," he told a scrum that included Toronto Star sports writer Tim Harper. "We go out and play a game and you guys (reporters) want to hang around as ask about a #*@& uniform? ... Your job is to write about the game, not some #*@& uniform."
