Oops: Casey 'Mittlestadt' takes part in first-pitch ceremony at Wrigley Field

It's probably not the first time. With a last name like "Mittelstadt" surely the top NHL draft prospect from Eden Prairie has seen his last name spelled many, many different ways.
And there was Casey Mittelstadt on Wednesday afternoon, two days before the draft in the Windy City honored pregame at Wrigley Field along with fellow top prospects Nolan Patrick and Gabriel Vilardi in authentic Cubs pinstripes.
Just one problem: Someone sewed "Mittlestadt" on the back of Casey's threads.
So it wasn't the mighty Casey who struck out, but the defending World Series champions.
