Washington Natinals

No, I didn't make a typo in that title. But Majestic Athletic company did make an error. From ESPN:
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...

"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.
Amazing, but true.

See it for yourself here.

Update: Apparently, this kind of error has occurred throughout baseball history -- as I learned on a SABR listserv.
