Nelson Mandela accomplished many impressive things over the course of his life, but playing third base for the New York Yankees was not one of them. This may come as a surprise to Detroit NBC affiliate WDIV, who seem to have confused the two in a graphic that ran yesterday (above).

The graphic of Alex Rodriguez was up for seven seconds before it was quickly replaced with the correct headshot. [h/t New York Daily News]
