Everyone has been spelling Kendry Morales’ name wrong

Kendry Morales revealed today that his actual name is Kendrys Morales–with an extra “S” in the first name–which means everyone has been spelling his name wrong for at least seven years.

That seems like sort of a long time to let that type of thing go unchanged, but according to Kevin Baxter of the Los Angeles Times “he just never bothered to correct it” when the “S” was left off the contract he signed with Angels in 2004.

Or as Morales put it today: “No, no, no, no, no. They’ve been spelling it wrong.”

In fairness, “they” would have been happy to stop “spelling it wrong” had anyone told them. Whatever his name is, his status for Opening Day remains uncertain as he comes back from last season’s broken leg.

    They didn’t forget the “s”. Danys Baez stole it.

    I’m sure if it was a $ and not an S he wouldn’t have let it go.

    Edinson Volquez can sympathize.

    I hope they don’t check his birth certificate.

    I hear Aarons Gleeman’s name is also misspelled.
