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:

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.
