On May 15, 1922 Ty Cobb hits a grounder SS Everett Scott. The official scorer of the game John Kieran rules it an error. Fred Lieb scores it a hit for the Associated Press.
At the end of the year the AP says Ty has 211 hits in 526 at bats, good for a .401 batting average. The official scorers tabulations is 210 hits in 526 at bats, good for a .399 batting average.
At the end of the season a mini-controversy erupts when the AL uses the AP tabulations as the final numbers. To add to the confusion the New York Times has at the end of the season with 527 at bats and 210 hits.
