Please do regard what follows, and what follows, which comes courtesy of @yakyunightowl, is a card d' baseball of Twins manager Ron Gardenhire in his days as a hail-fellow-well-met infielder for the Triple-A Portland Beavers in 1987 ...

The mustache you see above is known colloquially as "good buddy to the smile of Ron Gardenhire."

While it is not a verifable fact, it is strongly suspected that Ron Gardenhire, at the time this image was captured, was The Most Contented Man in All the WorldTM. Ron Gardenhire, you see, was playing this, our baseball and, owing to his "gentleman at play; gentleman at ease" inclinations, figured that things would turn out just fine.

In matters related, things turned out just fine for Ron Gardenhire.
