The Rockies won a home game Saturday night, and fans at Coors Field received replicas of shortstop Troy Tulowitzki's jersey. But the shirts misspelled his last name.

LINDA WERTHEIMER, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Linda Wertheimer with news of an all-star spelling error. The Colorado Rockies beat the Pittsburgh Pirates in a home game Saturday night, and fans at Coors Field received replicas of shortstop Troy Tulowitzki's jersey. But the shirts misspelled his last name, omitting the second T. The Rockies apologize; they did notice the error, but decided to give out the jerseys anyway rather than leave fans empty-handed. It's MORNING EDITION.
