Tony Oliva may have been more excited to see 'The Voice' star Nicholas David than the other way around

Great baseball players have heroes, too.

Former All-Star right fielder Tony Oliva was giddy upon meeting Nicholas David -- singer from Season 3 of "The Voice" -- at Target Field on Monday afternoon. David was in town to sing the national anthem for the Twins' home opener. 

"I know you from TV," Oliva said. "I cheered for you so hard!"
