CLEVELAND — There have been scores of great characters throughout movie history, but in Cleveland, none may be more beloved than Rick "Wild Thing" Vaughn.
In the cinematic world of the film Major League, Charlie Sheen's characters arrives at Cleveland Indians spring training as a juvenile delinquent with a wicked fastball but no control. However, with the help of a trademark pair of new glasses, Vaughn evolved into the staff ace, and helped lead the Tribe to the 1989 American League East division championship.
Now, Cleveland fans can own a piece of history from that wonderful moment, as both Sheen's cap and baseball used in the movie are up for auction. The cap features the classic Chief Wahoo look used by the real team until last year, while the ball is the same one Vaughn used to strike out New York Yankees slugger Clue Haywood to set up the dramatic ending to the final game. It is also signed by Charlie Sheen himself.
On Lelands auctions, the current bid for the hat stands at $1,100, while the ball sits at $1,464. The auction ends next month, and the items can be bid on here.
