These dramatic Charlie Blackmon photos are weird and wonderful

No one in baseball looks like Charlie Blackmon. The All-Star Rockies outfielder has been rocking the mullet/thick beard combo for a few years now and it's become perhaps the most iconic hair situation in the league right now. It's also important to mention that Blackmon's dinger-knocking capabilities are magically tied to the length of his facial hair.

His unique look is also a great reflection of his personality: Unforgivingly different, delightfully quirky and memorable for its refreshing bluntness. Blackmon is, and always will be, his own dude -- the type of guy who was driving his high school Jeep to the ballpark as recently as 2016.

The one-of-a-kind ballplayer continued doing his thing during Rockies picture day Wednesday afternoon. Check out these photos.

What's that smell...Freedom

Bless this man. He looks as if he just won the Olympic gold medal for something like "wilderness survival" after spending three weeks alone in a forest. 

All the love to Blackmon for embracing his genuine weirdness. There are few guys in baseball I'd rather go camping with than him -- both because I think he'd be entertaining and because I bet he's super good at fire building and definitely knows which berries are poisonous.
