Name game: Britton says wife, Yanks led to spelling change

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Even Zack Britton gets confused about the proper spelling of his first name.

Known throughout his baseball career as Zach, the 31-year-old New York Yankees reliever said last week that going forward his name should be spelled Zack.

“I was born with a ‘ch’, sorry, excuse me, the ‘ck,‘” Britton said Monday after his first pre-spring training workout at the New York Yankees’ minor league complex.

The sort of loopiness that one wishes were more prevalent this off-season.

New man: Zach Britton to be known as Zack

NEW YORK (AP) — Zack Britton will be a different pitcher for the New York Yankees this year — at least in name.

Known throughout his baseball career as Zach, the 31-year-old reliever said Thursday going forward his name should be spelled Zack.

Britton tweeted “I will be going by my legal name ‘Zack’ instead of my stage name ‘Zach.’

In case you’ve ever wondered what people in baseball mean when they talk about players to be named later….
