Cleveland Wants to Call Rick Vaughn from the Bullpen
We all know the greatest baseball movie is Major League. Well... one of the top five. And certainly featured some of the best baseball in a movie. You could actually believe Willie Mays Hays was a top-notch base runner, and Pedro Cerrano had trouble with the curve ball, and of course that Rick Vaughn had a killer fastball.
The film has become an all time classic. It showcased the under-doggedness of the Indians franchise. The Cleveland Indians have the second longest World Series drought in the league at 67 years, obviously behind the Cubs with 107 years. They haven't even been to the Fall Classic since 1997. But now they've got their shot. And the people of Cleveland want Rick "The Wild Thing" Vaughn himself, Mr. Charlie Sheen, to throw out the ceremonial first pitch of the series, as Cleveland hosts Game 1 of the World Series.
I am 100% on board with this plan. I say we rally around this idea, and send Sheen to the World Series. That said, if the Cubs make it, Thomas Ian Nicholas, who played 13-year-old Cubs pitching phenom Henry Rowengartner in Rookie of the Year throws out the first pitch at Wrigley. When the Dodgers make it, Mike Vitar, who was Benny "The Jet" Rodriguez in The Sandlot, throws out the first pitch at Dodger Stadium.
