ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) — It wasn’t by accident that Mike Shannon met actor Charlie Sheen for the first time yesterday, but guess who was more excited about the visit?

Shannon told KMOX’s Charlie Brennan Wednesday morning that Sheen is just a really big baseball fan.

The two met in a hotel lobby in Houston, Texas where the Cardinals are playing the Astros.

The two have a mutual friend in common, he’s actually helping Sheen with his current tour, Charlie Sheen LIVE: My Violent Torpedo of Truth. Sheen has five more stops on that tour.

Shannon describes Sheen as any other guy who loves baseball, “very down to earth, with his feet on the ground.”

Shannon said Sheen just wanted to talk a little baseball. He also met several Cardinals players during his short visit.

When Shannon asked Charlie if he was happy. Sheen replied, “What do you think?”

    I’ve never personally met Sheen, but did have more than a few opportunities to meet Shannon. They are perfectly matched.
