'Home Run Hitler' In School Yearbook: One Heil Of A Typo Describes Baseball Player (PHOTO)

Thanks to what appears to be a horrible yearbook typo, a young slugger has been congratulated for being a "Home Run Hitler."

Scroll to view a photo of the embarrassing typo below, but if you'd like to see some of the more, um, memorable swings by Reddit users, stop here:

"Three Reichs and you're out."
"Seriously though, how did the proofreader Nazi that?"
"You have to be careful when you face Auschwitz hitter."

Deadspin took a cut at the unfortunate typo as well.

"Born 20 years earlier, and he would've been drafted by the Reds," the sports site wrote, presumably referencing now-deceased Cincinnati Reds owner Marge Schott, who expressed support for Hitler.

The headline of the Imgur entry reads: "Terrible typo I found in my school's yearbook." If this oversight is real, that would be a terrible understatement.

The poor player. At least J.C. Penney's Hitler teapot won't have teammates and family to face.
