WASHINGTON (AP)—Majestic Athletic spelled things out quite clearly Tuesday: It was the uniform company’s fault that Washington Nationals Adam Dunn and Ryan Zimmerman wore jerseys reading “Natinals” during a game last week.

Dunn and Zimmerman donned the shirts that were missing an “O” for the first three innings of Washington’s 3-2 loss to the Florida Marlins on Friday night. They eventually changed into jerseys with the team nickname spelled correctly.

“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,” Majestic Athletic president Jim Pisani said in a statement distributed at Nationals Park on Tuesday.

“We take 100 percent responsibility for this event and we regret any embarrassment for the Nationals organization, players and fans,” the statement continued.

Did they win that game? If so then maybe thet need to change their name to the Natinals. That might help.

Reminded me of that old joke about the time the Washington Bullets changed their name.
"The Washington Bullets have realized that their name has made many people think of violence, murder, and crime, therefore, in the future the team will simply be called the Bullets."

I liked when Russel Athletic in beautiful downtown Alexander City, AL made most of MLB's' uniforms. I met all the gals who sewn the uniforms when I was in the garment biz. They were the nicest bunch. I think the plant closed a few years ago. Couldn't compete with cheap off shore labor.
