Former Twins outfielder and current New York Yankee Aaron Hicks tried to be a nice guy and give this fan a foam claw thing in Kansas City on Wednesday. The problem was, it took four hilarious tries to successfully get this souvenir over the wall, check it out.

Hicks has been ripping the cover off the ball this season for the Yankees. The former first-round pick by the Twins notched another home run on Wednesday night – his sixth of the year – and is hitting .325 this season.

Minnesota traded Hicks to New York in November of 2015 for catcher John Ryan Murphy, who's played in just 24 games with the Twins.

Murphy is hitting .232 at Triple-A Rochester with three home runs this season. Barring an injury to Jason Castro or Chris Gimenez it doesn't look like he'll be getting called up any time soon.

You're welcome, New York.
