Now we completely expect the hapless Kansas City Royals to make blunders on the field, but we expect a little bit of professionalism during their broadcast. Fox Sports Kansas City made one of the most egregious and blatant errors of sports graphics of all-time on Thursday night. During the Royals and Los Angeles Angels game the broadcast team asked the question; “Which Young Player Would You Like To Start A Franchise With?” The question was a extremely thought-provoking, however the answers couldn’t have been more off.
- Instead of Bryce Harper they named him “Bryce Hunter.”
- Bryce Harper plays for the Washington Nationals and not the Detroit Tigers.
- They listed Matt Harvey as “Matt Jones.”
- Matt Harvey plays for the New York Mets and not for the Baltimore Orioles.
- They got Manny Machado’s name correct, but then put him on the Chicago White Sox instead of the Orioles.
- I am not sure if this is foreshadowing, but as of right now superstar Mike Trout is currently a member of the Los Angeles Angels and not the New York Yankees.
For anyone who is looking for a TV graphic job you may want to check the Kansas City employment classifieds tomorrow morning.
