Relive the madness of the Mookie Betts fan interference in ALCS Game 4 with these tweets

Game 4 of the ALCS got off to a wild start Wednesday night. After the Red Sox scored two runs in the top of the first inning, it appeared that Jose Altuve had evened the game up for the Astros on a deep fly ball to right field. Instead, Mookie Betts leaped for the ball and came into contact with some fans as he tried to make the catch. 

As the play was reviewed to rule the call on the field of fan interference would stand, everyone on Twitter tried to figure out what exactly transpired on the play.

Then -- because this is Twitter, after all -- it came time to debate the ruling. Things got testy in a hurry.

At the end of the day, though, what matters is how we will remember the moment. And what better way to commemorate a significant event than a work of art?
