Todd Helton, Mr. Rockie, is headed to Cooperstown. The amazing career-long Colorado Rockies first baseman was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame of Museum on Tuesday.

Helton was the first Rockies player to get his number retired by the club and No. 17 is the second to don purple pinstripes in the Hall of Fame, joining Larry Walker. Walker lit up social media by wearing a Spongebob shirt when he took his unforgettable phone call. Helton was wearing purple and let out a first pump.

Here’s how social media and some big names reacted to Helton’s enshrining moment:
