Look: This ESPN Baseball Hall of Fame graphic is a total disaster
For the vast majority of baseball fans, Sunday’s Baseball Hall of Fame inductees are household names. ESPN’s graphics department, however, did not get the memo.
During Sunday night’s Baseball Tonight telecast, ESPN’s analysts discussed the 2019 Hall of Fame class in front of a large backdrop with each inductee’s name and picture on it. There was a big problem, however: the graphic misspelled Roy Halladay’s name and completely butchered Mike Mussina’s.

This isn’t the first time ESPN has made a pretty big mistake graphically during a baseball telecast, but this one is particularly egregious. They’re Hall of Famers, and Halladay and Mussina both played fairly recently. How do you mess that one up so badly? It’s so bad, in fact, that it’s reminiscent of this iconic nightmare from several years back.
