Twitter had a field day after a FOX Sports graphical error went viral during Game 2 of the ALDS on Friday.
Like most baseball broadcasts these days, FOX displays the projected distance and exit velocity when a player rounds the bases after hitting a home run. It was no different when Boston’s Kiké Hernandez hit a game-tying shot in the top of the fifth.
There was just one problem: instead of filling in Hernandez’s name, FOX accidentally popped the numbers up with some placeholder text.

Naturally, most viewers noticed such a glaringly obvious graphical error, and there were jokes.

To be fair, good ol' "First Last Name" is about how well I know most of the Red Sox since they traded away Mookie pic.twitter.com/KQvlRQ6q1R

All I’m saying is I’ve never seen “First Last Name” and “Cash Considerations” in the same room pic.twitter.com/FtqPJ7h5s2

FOX did introduce a new scorebug for the playoffs, but this is just an accident that has nothing to do with the display. This will happen from time to time. On the bright side, it’s nowhere near as bad as this screwed-up graphic, so it absolutely could be worse.
