Shortly after the Cleveland Indians won the ALCS, fans began pulling for Charlie Sheen to throw out the first pitch of the World Series.
If the Indians go to the World Series, @charliesheen should throw the first pitch as Rick Vaughn in Cleveland.

First pitch of the World Series... They gotta bring Charlie Sheen out to wild thing

Sheen played "Wild Thing" in the iconic 1989 movie, "Major League." The movie follows character Rachel Phelps who inherited the Cleveland Indians from her dead husband and is offered a deal to move the team to Miami.
In order to get out of her contract and move the team, she plots to cause attendance at games to decline. She hires the worst players, including rookie pitcher Ricky Vaughn, whose nickname was "Wild Thing."
But because of her plan, those players try even harder and end up going to the World Series.
On Thursday, Sheen responded to the request on Twitter to the delight of "Major League" fans ever saying, "Major League continues to be the gift that keeps on giving! If called upon, I'd be honored."
