Not again: ESPN mistakes Tigers for White Sox in video

Oh no, it happened again.


ESPN didn’t quite forget the White Sox this time. They just happened to forget what jersey the team wears.

On Sportscenter’s Snapchat, they had a video explaining that the White Sox will play the Yankees at the Field of Dreams in Iowa. When there should have been an image of the White Sox, instead there was a pair of Detroit Tigers displayed. To make things weirder, Gordon Beckham, a former first-round pick of the White Sox who spent seven years with the team, was one of the Tigers in the image.

It has since been fixed, but it was captured and posted on Twitter.

This incident can join the list of an ESPN graphic that didn’t include the 2005 World Series win for the White Sox, the stat ESPN Stats & Info tweeted that left off the 11-1 postseason record for that team and the time an ESPN researcher didn’t include Frank Thomas in a list of players to finish in the top four of MVP voting. There’s also the Wheel of Fortune puzzle that had the other four major Chicago sports teams and didn’t include the White Sox, but that’s not ESPN’s fault.

Add it to the list of grievances, White Sox fans.
