    From what I've been told and the way I've been saying it.

    "TLOO-stee"

    I also read it was like "Twoo-stee"

    But i'd go with the first one.

    Pretty much. You don't really need a vowel between the t and the l, but that's not exactly easy for English speakers.

    In Czech, the r in Jiri is pronounced kind of like zh, as in Zhitnik. But we don't do that in English, obviously.

    That would sound like YeeZhee.

    I would say it´s YeerZhee Tloostee, but the Tloostee is much shorter spoken as for example in the word school.

    Yeah, but that's basically how it sounds to the English ear. The r-sound is extremely subtle, it hard to tell it's even there.

    Kind of like Dvorak... it's not hard if you're good at other accents. Americans are lucky in that sense because our speech is so blaand that it is possible to master any accent, with practice.

    Doesn´t matter, the Yankees always had and will always have problems to pronounce czech, german or russian player names :D

    But they are very talented inventing new pronounces :handclap: (which sometimes sounds really funny)
