Chicago Cubs reliever Ryan Tepera received a 10th-place vote in the National League MVP balloting.
Tepera, who was 0-1 with a 3.92 ERA during the coronavirus-shortened season, received the vote in error. The miscue didn't affect the results in any way.
"I meant to hit Trea Turner and thought I had," St. Louis Post-Dispatch writer Rick Hummel said. Hummel in 2006 won the Baseball Writers' Association of America's award for excellence that is presented during the Hall of Fame's induction ceremonies.
"I should have double-checked it," Hummel said.
