The Colorado Rockies gave out 15,000 Troy Tulowitzki shirts on Saturday night that weren't exactly letter perfect.

The shortstop's name was mispelled T-U-L-O-W-I-Z-K-I, so you might say every fan was teed off.

The Rockies knew about the gaffe before Saturday but gave out the shirts anyway. Now comes word that the team plans to give away correctly spelled shirts later this season. The team also said fans can exchange the misspelled item and get a free ticket to a game.

Good luck with that. The Rockies are in last place in the NL West so Saturday's giveaway might just be the most valuable thing fans take away from this season.

Tulowitzki, who is on the disabled list, didn't seem fazed by it all. In fact, he wasn't even at the game, which the Rockies won, 8-1, over Pittsburgh.

According to New Jersey.com, Troy was in Philly on Saturday getting a second opinion on his hip flexor strain. Yesterday he was seen taking in the Yankees-Blue Jays game in New York.

Earlier this season, Tulowitzki said that taking over as shortstop for retiring Yankees star Derek Jeter would be a "perfect story."
