(Newser) – The Colorado Rockies love their All-Star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki so much that at last night's game the team gave out 15,000 replica jerseys—emblazoned with his name spelled as Tulowizki. The rather large-scale typo was in fact noticed, the Rockies say, but they decided to go ahead with the giveaway anyway, reports ESPN; a new round of jerseys presumably stamped Tulowitzki will be given out in September and fans will be allowed to exchange the flubbed one. That is, if they want to: As one usher tells the AP, many "took the shirt and left. They recognized it was a collector's item. They were gone fast." (Read more typographical error stories.)
