Yankees Misspell Jacoby Ellsbury's Name in His 1st Game at Yankee Stadium

The New York Yankees signed Jacoby Ellsbury to a seven-year, $153 million contract this past offseason, but it's valid to wonder whether or not they could read his signature on the contract.

The outfielder's name was spelled incorrectly on the scoreboard in his first game at Yankee Stadium. Oops.

Whoever made the mistake should try to say that it was a way of welcoming a former Boston Red Sox player to the Bronx.

Ellsbury must be a tough name to spell. Last week, a Red Sox fan had trouble with the spelling while trying to take a dig at the veteran.
