The signs at Yankee Stadium featured an unfortunate error involving New York Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius' last name on Tuesday. 

During the team's game against the Minnesota Twins, a banner scrolled by with a promotional advertisement for "Didi Gregious Bat Day" on May 12:

Before @DidiG18 comes to bat in the 3rd, here's an advertisement for Didi "Gregious" Bat Day. Oops. #Yankees https://t.co/o4RZpssvae

Gregorius has certainly earned the right to be celebrated for his big bat. The 28-year-old set a new Yankees record with 25 homers as a shortstop last year, one more than Derek Jeter hit during the 1999 season.

So far in 2018, Gregorius is slugging an MLB-high .740 and is tied for sixth with seven home runs.
