Does that pronunciation drive anyone else nuts? Or is that actually correct?

Not going to lie, it's going to take some getting use to...

It’s correct.    There’s a prominent Spanish Bank called Banco Santander and that’s how it’s pronounced.

It might be correct, but I’m in Texas. Here they pronounce Blanco as Blank-o, Manchaca as Man-shack and Guadalupe as Guada-loop.

It’s San-tan-dur.

When everyone was pronouncing it wrong I thought to myself “That is a strange way to pronounce Santander. Is he from Texas?”

It’s correct, Kevin Brown asked Santander himself how it sounds. The old pronunciation drove me nuts because it didn’t jive with my HS Spanish lessons, but I’d assumed incorrectly that he wanted it said that way.

I am glad that Major League Baseball has made it a priority to pronounce players names correctly, and include accent marks on uniforms. We have come a long way from Bob Clemente.

Yup. And in the last series Jim Hunter and Mike Bordick went on and on about changing how they pronounce it: San-tan-d'air

Only took them a year and a half to figure out how to say it right. 

Gary Thorne never learned how to say Sarfate, or Encarnacion.   And those are more obvious than Santander.
