Brewers manager Ron Roenicke wears 'Milwakuee' jersey

MILWAUKEE -- Ron Roenicke didn't think twice before putting on his uniform prior to Saturday night's 6-0 victory over the Miami Marlins.

The skipper of the Milwaukee Brewers has plenty of things to worry about on game day and how the name on the front of his uniform is spelled is not one of them.

Wearing the uniforms of the 1923 Milwaukee Bears as part of Milwaukee's eighth annual Negro Leagues tribute game, Roenicke's jersey had a slight error.

Instead of saying "Milwaukee" across the chest, Roenicke's top said "Milwakuee" on the front.

"I didn't even know what was on the jersey," Roenicke said.

Photos of the misspelled uniform instantly hit Twitter and the Internet, leading to a member of the Brewers staff having Roenicke change uniforms in the third inning.

"The TV must have picked up on it," Roenicke said. "Somebody came down and told me."
