Lets add an apostrophe

From CBS 2 Chicago:

Error Caught On Pedestal For Ernie Banks Statue
Apostrophe Missing In Inscription, ‘Let’s Play Two’
CHICAGO (CBS) ― The Ernie Banks statue in front of Wrigley Field was a big hit when it was unveiled, but it turned into an error – a punctuation error, that is.

The likeness of the 77-year-old Hall of Famer best known as “Mr. Cub” was unveiled to much fanfare on Monday.

But the “Let’s Play Two” inscription on the pedestal for the statute was missing the apostrophe before the “s.”

The sculptor, Lou Cella, took some gentle ribbing from radio jocks, reporters and columnists. But he says he is an artist, not a writer.

The error was fixed in short order. On Wednesday morning, crews came and etched an apostrophe into the inscription.

(Thanks, Vinnie!)

Statute? A glaring error in an article about an error.
