Charlie Sheen is finally getting his wish of going to the World Series to support the Cleveland Indians, after days of publicly grousing about the issue on social media.
“FEAR NOT, ‘BELIEVE’LAND!! My bag is packed, and help is on the way!!” the “Major League” star tweeted Wednesday morning.
TMZ reported Sheen’s sudden luck is due to two local Cleveland business owners who have invited the actor to a primetime-ready seat right behind the Indians’ dugout for Game 7.
The Indians are facing the Chicago Cubs in winner-take-all Game 7 of the World Series. After Cleveland failed to capitalize on a 3-1 series lead, the two teams are now tied at three games apiece.
Sheen has been vocal about his support of the team he pretended to play for in the 1989 film “Major League,” campaigning to throw out the first pitch and dressing up as character Ricky “Wild Thing” Vaughn in a video, among other antics.
The film, which also starred Tom Berenger and Corbin Bernsen, revolved around a plot by the owner of the Cleveland Indians to assemble a terrible team in order to ultimately move it elsewhere. However, that plan becomes imperiled when the Tribe actually start winning.
Sheen returned to play Vaughn in the 1994 film “Major League 2,” but did not appear in a subsequent sequel, “Back to the Minors.” He has also entertained the idea of appearing in a new “Major League” film.
The World Series airs tonight on Fox at 8 p.m. ET.
My bag is packed,
and help is on the way!!
