DENVER  — Charlie Blackmon’s biggest fan might be a little kid.

Brandon Guthrie tweeted a video of 2-year-old Tommy Garlson from Highlands Ranch on Monday, in a reply to a Colorado Rockies’ tweet about the center fielder’s inside-the-park home run against the New York Mets on Sunday.

Tommy, who is sitting in a high chair, appears to be calmly watching a baseball game on TV.

When the announcer introduces Blackmon, the kid loses his mind.

Rockies officials took notice of the kid’s enthusiasm.

Several other fans admitted they have the same reaction to seeing Blackmon.

Tommy’s grandmother, Donna Carlson, said he loves baseball and the Rockies.

“We don’t know why he picked Charlie but he flips every time he sees him on TV,” Donna Carlson told FOX31 Denver.

Now some fans are saying they hope the little guy will get to meet his major league man crush.
