CLEVELAND - After the All Star Game on Tuesday, Jeff McNeil expressed his displeasure that the scoreboard at Progressive Field displayed Jacob deGrom's picture when he batted.
"That was tough to see deGrom's picture up there," McNeil said. "I didn't really like that. I want to see my picture up there. I know my family did too. What are you gonna do, I guess. I don't think that should happen."
Now, the Indians are apologizing to McNeil, in addition to Colorado's David Dahl and the Cubs' Willson Contreras, whose names were misspelled.
In a statement to SNY, the Indians said, "We are very excited about the positive reaction we've received about All-Star Week events in Cleveland. It was obviously unfortunate about the scoreboard miscues and we apologize those occurred."
