In today’s Ticker: Another stadium-ad typo, an NWSL expansion team, and more.
- Today is Lou Gehrig Day. All MLB teams will be wearing commemorative jersey patches.
- Remember that recent typo in an ad at Dodger Stadium? There was a similarly embarrassing goof yesterday at the Mets’ ballpark. (From Gaylord Fields)
- Speaking of the Mets’ ballpark: With Pride Month beginning yesterday, they had some rainbow flags flying at the stadium. (From Mary Bakija)
- This is fun: Baseball cards that show the player wearing a uniform he never actually wore in a game.
- The NWSL’s new Bay Area expansion team will be called Bay Football Club and a crest has been unveiled. The name leaves a lot to be desired, but I actually kinda like the crest. (From Brendan Wilhide and our own Jamie Rathjen)
- Houston Dynamo DF Erik Sviatchenko had an atrocious print job for his NOB and number during Wednesday night’s game against Vancouver. (From Micah Burk)
- New jerseys for the Indian national teams. (Thanks, Phil)
- Some really cool news here: Reader Joseph Curran saw a ticker-linked Philadelphia Inquirer piece soliciting submissions for a redesign of the flag of Philadelphia, so he submitted his own design. It’s been chosen as one of the Inquirer’s ten finalists. Good luck Joe!
- Cartoonist Ron Ruelle, the man behind the Brooklyn Branches, has just published a new novel, Anchovies and Ice Cream. Check it out here.
