The photo of the Bluffton University baseball team that appeared on page A-1 March 31 and on toledoblade.com was digitally altered and should not have been published.
The photographer digitally removed the legs of a person standing behind the number 19 banner. The photograph that should have been published is below.
The photographer said he altered the photo for his personal files only and inadvertently transmitted the wrong picture for publication.
The Blade s policy is to never alter photographs, and the newspaper regrets the incident and apologizes to readers.
