    The Texas Rangers had zero errors on the field Sunday in their 6-2 win over the Toronto Blue Jays. But one off the field now has the internet buzzing.

    The first 15,000 fans who entered Globe Life Park Sunday afternoon received a free Prince Fielder bobblehead, courtesy of Medical Center Arlington - or "Medical Center Arilngton" as was printed on many of the figurines.

    Photos showing the spelling mistake have gone viral online.

    A spokesperson for the Rangers says the letters were hand-painted on each of the bobbleheads and it appears some of the paint ran together during the drying process, creating issues with the letters “I” and “L”.

    In a statement, the team said, “We want to apologize to Medical Center Arlington for this issue and we will take steps to ensure this will not happen again.”

    The Rangers said they saw and approved the final layouts and molds before the bobbleheads were made and the problem was not evident then.
