It seemed as though everyone in the entire country heard about misspelled Nationals jerseys last week - it was even on "The Today Show." See our post with pictures.

Majestic Athletic
released a statement today that it was their fault that Washington Nationals Adam Dunn and Ryan Zimmerman wore jerseys reading “Natinals” during a game on Friday night against the Marlins. Dunn and Zimmerman eventually changed into jerseys with the team nickname spelled correctly.

“All of us at Majestic Athletic want to apologize to both the Washington Nationals and Major League Baseball for accidentally omitting the ‘O’ in two Nationals jerseys,” Majestic Athletic president Jim Pisani said in a statement distributed at Nationals Park on Tuesday.

“We take 100 percent responsibility for this event and we regret any embarrassment for the Nationals organization, players and fans,” the statement continued.
