The Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees are — as usual — the Sunday Night Baseball game on ESPN. CC Sabathia made the start for the Yankees, and entered the game leading all active MLB pitchers in career wins with 249. So, ESPN had a montage ready for Sabathia as he goes for his 250th win.

Well, one part of the montage featured a “leads active pitchers with 249 wins” graphic, and showed a photo of Yankees outfielder Aaron Hicks, who is definitely not CC Sabathia.


Many ESPN viewers quickly noticed the gaffe and tweeted about it:

Just another blunder in what has been an ugly year for Sunday Night Baseball.
