It turns out you can rewrite history.

Derek Jeter's hit that tied Honus Wagner on the all-time hit list has been changed to an error by MLB executive vice president Joe Torre.

In the grand scheme of things it doesn't really matter because Jeter has had six hits since then, putting him at sixth on the all-time list with 3,435. Wagner had 3,430.

On the changed first-inning play from Aug. 8, Indians shortstop Jose Ramirez ranged to his left behind second base, did a full spin and threw off balance to first baseman Carlos Santana, who dropped the ball. It would have been a close play if Santana had hung on, but replays appear to show that Jeter would have been out.

Jeter, per tradition, acted a bit bemused by the gathering of reporters around his locker.
