"Major League," which co-starred Tom Berenger, Wesley Snipes, Rene Russo, and Corbin Bernsen, told the story of a fictional Cleveland Indians team full of cast-offs and misfits that defied the odds to win the American League's Eastern Division. Although most of the movie was filmed in Milwaukee, several shots of Cleveland's Municipal Stadium were used.

Sheen's character of "Wild Thing" Ricky Vaughn" starts out as an inmate in the "California Penal League," before becoming a star pitcher and cult hero for the Indians. The 57-year-old Sheen, who also appeared in movie hits "Platoon," "Wall Street," and "Hot Shots," has embraced the character since the movie's release. He even returned to Cleveland to root on the Tribe during Game 7 of the 2016 World Series at Progressive Field.
