What's in a name? Plenty for Angels' Kendrys Morales
His given name on his birth certificate is spelled Kendrys, with an "s" on the end. Asked Wednesday which spelling he preferred, Morales was adamant about restoring the final consonant.
"No, no, no, no, no. They've been spelling it wrong," he said in Spanish.
Morales said his name is spelled correctly -- Kendrys Morales Rodriguez -- on all his personal documents but when the final "s" was left off after he signed with the Angels in December 2004 he just never bothered to correct it.
