High school athletes are sometimes viewed as heroes. Whether it’s the quarterback who throws a touchdown pass to lead his team to a state championship or the basketball player who drains a three at the buzzer to beat a cross-town rival, it’s easy to why athletes tend to hog the spotlight in high school. But you know who deserves more credit? The yearbook committee.
Without a diligent yearbook staff, disasters like the one you see above that was posted on Reddit can occur. Because of an unfortunate typo, some Class of 2013 slugger has a new nickname — “Home Run Hitler.”
There are no do-overs. Instant replay isn’t going to save the day. In 2063, everyone will be asking if “Home Run Hitler” is making an appearance at the 50th high school reunion. If you ask me, yearbook committee members might as well be chemists.
