While reporting on the story that three members of the Nippon Ham Fighters baseball team has been diagnosed with swine flu (including former MLBer Terrmel Sledge), ESPN makes a mistake that’s all too common.
For the last time, they are not the Ham Fighters. They are simply the Fighters. Nippon Ham is the company that owns them. You’re a sports news organization, ESPN. Please, at the very least, get this right.
