Fans want Charlie Sheen to throw out first pitch of World Series as ‘Wild Thing’

(WTNH)–It’d probably be juuuuuust a bit outside.

But it would be fitting for Cleveland Indians and movie fans alike.

Fans on social media are calling for “Major League” star Charlie Sheen to throw out the first pitch at Game 1 of the World Series in Cleveland. The series, which starts on Tuesday, is back in Cleveland for the first time since 1997.

Sheen played relief pitcher Rick “Wild Thing” Vaughn in the 1989 movie, which chronicled a fictional Indians squad’s improbable run to the pennant.




On Thursday, Sheen responded to the fanfare with a tweet of his own:


So I guess there’s only one thing left for the Indians to do.

Win the whole frickin’ thing. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
