Twins manager Ron Gardenhire tried to downplay his dust-up with Aaron Hicks last night, calling it a "teachable moment" and telling reporters that he and Hicks are now heroes on the Internet because of it.

Internet heroes?

Well, in case you missed it, it all started when Hicks snagged a fly ball on the run and casually flipped it to Brian Dozier straight out of his glove. Technically, if the ball had hit the ground during that flip, it could have been ruled a non-out. No such thing happened, but the play still drew the manager's ire.

But don't just take our word for it. has an excellent series of GIFs that tell the story to perfection.
