This is a pretty silly story, that is understandably going viral and that you may have already seen, involving Baseball pioneer Jackie Robinson. Arguably, one of the most iconic players in the MLB, but also known for breaking e color barrier of the era by being the first black player.
The Allstar because a Hall of Famer back in 1962, his number 42 retired from the league, movies and tributes of all sorts have been made for him and about him. His name matters.-
Well, one of those tributes is a street in Queens called Jackie Robinson Parkway, unfortunately, the person who sent the info to the sign-maker and all the level between concept to execution missed one important thing. The letter "C" in his name.
Yes, the sign reads "Jakie Robinson Parkway" thanks to inept staff, manufacturers, sign installers who I guess never bothered looking up how the player spells his name
