CLEVELAND, Ohio — The calls started immediately.
Shortly after the Cleveland Indians triumphed in the ALCS, fans began pulling for Charlie Sheen to throw out the first pitch of the World Series.
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.
