Charlie Sheen might not physically be at the World Series, but he’s certainly there in spirit.
With the Cleveland Indians facing off against the Chicago Cubs in Game 2 of the series Wednesday night, Sheen revived his character Ricky Vaughn from the 1989 film, suiting up with glasses to cheer on the Indians.
Against a backdrop of the film, Sheen appeared as Vaughn in a video posted to his Twitter account to make his allegiances known, declaring, “Go Tribe.”
The film, which also starred Tom Berenger and Corbin Bernsen, revolved around the owner of the Cleveland Indians assembling a terrible team so she can ultimately move them elsewhere. However, that plan becomes imperiled when the team begins winning.
Sheen had been lobbying to throw out the first pitch of the series as Vaughn.
However, the MLB said earlier this month that it had already made its choice. Ultimately former Indians outfielder Kenny Lofton did the honors.
Guess we’ll have to settle for this — which is still pretty good.
“Get me Vaughn”
Sheen returned to play Vaughn again in the 1994 film “Major League 2,” but did not appear in another sequel, “Back to the Minors.” He has entertained the idea of appearing in a new “Major League” film.
