Charlie Sheen 'Wild Thing' Watched World Series Supporting Cleveland Indians; Sheen Did Not Throw the First Pitch
Despite controversies of "Two and a Half Men" actor Charlie Sheen regarding the first pitch throw, he was still able to make it to Game 7 of the 2016 World Series. In fact, Charlie Sheen is well known and beloved in Cleveland even though his career has faced a rollercoaster ride in the past.
In 1989, Charlie Sheen starred as Rick "Wild Thing" Vaughn in the American sports comedy film "Major League." His role as a nearly blind pitcher straight out of prison was the groundbreaking kick starter to Sheen's Hollywood career.
In the film, Rick "Wild Thing" Vaughn became an excellent pitcher after being fitted with the correct glasses and going through training. Even though his major film success is over 27 years, Sheen still feels a certain connection with Vaughn.
According to USA Today, word has gotten out on social media that Charlie Sheen should throw out the first pitch in Cleveland at the beginning of the World Series. However, this didn't happen. So, the next best plan was laid out, which is to get Sheen to Game 7 of the 2016 World Series.
Come game day, Charlie Sheen arrived four hours ahead of the first pitch on Wednesday in Cleveland. A group of local businessmen pushed for Sheen's admittance to the arena.
Sheen even shared on Twitter the contents of his bag.
My bag is packed,
and help is on the way!!
