People literally follow this guy around thinking he's Jose Altuve.

WEBSTER, Texas (KTRK) -- As one of Houston's biggest stars, Jose Altuve gets mobbed by fans wherever he goes.

So, what happens if you kind of look like him?

"I always tell people I look a little bit more like off-season Altuve," laughed Edgar Ruiz.

Ruiz lives in Friendswood and owns All Star Revolution, a cheerleading training facility in Webster.

He's the same height as Altuve and even his students call him 'Jose.'

"I had a lady follow me out of H-E-B who thought I was him," he explained. "She even said, 'Well, your calves even look alike!' I thought that was a little weird."
