Charlie Sheen has made no secret about his desire to throw out the first pitch at a World Series game this year. On October 20, he tweeted that he’d be honored to revive Ricky “Wild Thing” Vaughn, his classic Major League character, if the Indians asked him.
When they didn’t ask, he got salty. During last night’s 9-3 Cubs win, Sheen suggested that the Tribe was losing because they hadn’t invited him to Cleveland.
It turns out, someone in the Cleveland might believe him. Early this morning, Sheen tweeted a picture of his travel bag and said “help is on the way.”
Could Sheen actually be slated to throw out the first pitch of game seven? No one knows for sure, but it does sound like Sheen really is going to Cleveland.
TMZ is reporting that two local business owners have given him tickets to the game and have lined up a day full of fun. Part of the plan is to have him meet up with members of the Cavs and get him in primo seats that guarantee TV time. So even if Wild Thing doesn't throw out the first pitch tonight, it sounds like he'll be in the house. That can only be good news for the Tribe.
