Making the All-Star Game is a huge deal and an honor for MLB players. For some, it might be the only time in their careers that they're on this grand stage. So, when you get there, you're not exactly prepared for your moment to be ruined by the graphics department or a scoreboard operator.
But for the Mets' Jeff McNeil, the Cubs' Willson Contreras and the Rockies' David Dahl, that's exactly what happened. During each of their appearances in Tuesday night's game, the Jumbotron had some major screw ups to what should have been a special moment for them, their friends and family.
For McNeil, it had a picture of his Mets teammate, Jacob deGrom, next to his name and stats on the Jumbotron.
For Contreras, his first name was spelled "Wilson" instead of the correct, Willson.
And Dahl was listed with the entirely wrong name, referring to him as "Davis" rather than David.
While these might be funny things for fans and the Twitterverse to make fun of, you can't imagine the All-Stars were all too happy about it.
