Say goodbye to the man you knew and Zach Britton and say hello to Zack Britton.
Breaking News: I will be going by my legal name “Zack” instead of my stage name “Zach”..... everyone continue to breath normally... #beenlivingalie #birthcertfail— Zack Britton (@zbritton) February 7, 2019
This is the kind of monumental change that I just don’t know if I can handle. One day you think you know a dude, the next it’s like he’s an entirely different person with a name pronounced the exact same way.
Well, except for those weirdos who don’t know Zach is pronounced Zach, and instead say “Zatch,” like some kind of monster.
It’s been a weird couple of years for baseball when it comes to name changes. It wasn’t long ago that B.J. Upton became Melvin Upton, in a move that everyone hated — including his wife, who begged him to go back to the man we all knew and loved.
It’s a long story. It never bothered me though. https://t.co/SLEO1uHglE— Zack Britton (@zbritton) February 7, 2019
For now, Zack Britton is saying it’s a long story why he had a different name for all these years, but maybe, one day, we’ll get the answers we seek.
