Don't call me 'Kendry' anymore

Since you're visiting the Eye on Baseball blog, let's assume you're a baseball fan. In assuming as much, that means you've heard of Kendry Morales.

Only that's not really his name. At least not the correct spelling.

As told to the Los Angeles Times , it's actually Kendrys (pronounced KEN-dreez) Morales -- Kendrys Morales Rodriguez, to be specific. That's the name that appears on his birth certificate and all other personal documents except his major-league contract.

Back in 2004, when Morales defected from Cuba and signed with the Angels, the contract erroneously contained no "s" at the end of his given first name. He signed the contract and "never bothered to correct it."

Don't mistake that for his being OK with the name Kendry. According to the Times, he's "adamant" that his real first name is Kendrys.
