Giants get apology about misspelled jersey

Submitted By AP Wire Service

SAN FRANCISCO (AP), Apr 09 - Longtime San Francisco Giants equipment manager Mike Murphy received an apologetic phone call from the team's uniform manufacturer for a misspelling on Eugenio Velez's gray road jersey.

It read ``San Fran-cic-so'' for the team's road series at Houston. A replacement was en route, Murphy said.

Murphy - with the club since it came West in 1958 - had no hard feelings, saying, ``we all make mistakes.'' He didn't notice it at the time and neither did Velez, who made his season debut in the Giants' 10-4 win over the Astros on Wednesday.

The Giants' next road game is April 16 in Los Angeles against the Dodgers.

This was the second year in a row that a major league uniform spelled trouble.

Last April, Adam Dunn and Ryan Zimmerman of the Washington Nationals wore jerseys reading ``Natinals'' for three innings of a game. The company that made the uniforms apologized for the mistake.
