Chicago White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson sounded off on social media about how he felt after the internet made fun of him for getting knocked out during a game on Aug. 4 against the Cleveland Guardians.
Guardians third baseman José Ramírez slid into second base as Anderson towered over him. Ramírez got up and pointed his finger in Anderson’s face. Anderson then squared up and the two started throwing punches. In the midst of the fistfight, Ramírez caught Anderson with a right hook, knocking him out.

On Aug. 7, Major League Baseball announced Anderson received a six-game suspension and Ramírez was suspended for three games.
After the fight, came the memes and jokes.

Ok, I saw someone made a bad Photoshop of Sonic rings surrounding Tim Anderson, so I felt compelled to make this dumb edit and then come back to whatever this app has become so I can share it. No one asked, but you’re welcome anyway. pic.twitter.com/qj9YQOzmS5
