He was a 10-time All-Star, a 9-time Gold Glove winner and a 7-time Silver Slugger recipient.

He was the National League MVP in 1984 and he was the “other No. 23” in Chicago during the 1980s and 90s.

He even went into the Hall of Fame in 2005 with a Cubs hat on.

But when it came time to get Ryne Sandberg‘s name into a team calendar, the spelling was botched worse than any error he ever made at second base, according to the Tweet below and a story reported on Next Impulse Sports.

Ryne became Ryan.

And apparently Ryan Sandberg played third base for the Cubs in his rookie season in 1982. Didn’t know that.

I understand Sandberg is currently the manager of the rival Philadelphia Phillies, but come on. I mean, it’s just an editing error by someone who might not have been alive when Sandberg was running the North Side of Chicago. But still, no excuse; he’s a legend in that town.

Isn’t it bad enough the Phils have the worst scoring offense in the National League and Ryno is already on the hot seat?
