The Worst Mistake of Its Kind Since Columbus Found "The Indies"

When rookie pitcher Tom Mastny joined the Cleveland Indians last week, it was disccovered that he is listed in the team's media guide as being from Indonesia, making him the first-ever major leaguer from that country. This was even mentioned in Sports Illustrated this week.

Oops. As Paul Hagen reported in the Philadelphia Daily News yesterday, Mastny is actually not from Indonesia. He's from Indiana. This profile says he's from Zionsville, and he doesn't look Indonesian.
