The Cicso Kid

Major League Baseball has had its share of what I’ll term “error wearers” — players who donned misspelled jerseys. I’ve blogged about some of these fashion faux pas before, here, here and here. Now it’s time to chronicle one about the City by the Bay.

San Francisco outfielder Eugenio Velez entered the April 7, 2010, game against Houston in the seventh inning. He walked in his only at-bat and scored the team’s final run in a 10-4 victory. 10-4 is more than a score; it’s CB radio lingo meaning, in essence, OK. You know what’s not 10-4? The farcical misspelling on Velez’s jersey.

I bet Velez could “CIC” himself for wearing a jersey with a Giant error.
