CLEVELAND - Actor Charlie Sheen, aka Wild Thing of the Major League baseball movie franchise, arrived in Cleveland Wednesday afternoon for Game 7 of the World Series.
He arrived at Burke Lakefront Airport at around 4 p.m. And, he had Jobu with him --the voodoo doll made famous in "Major League." Sheen said he brought the doll to bring the Indians luck.
The actor said his fast ball isn't that great anymore, but he's ready to cheer on the Tribe. "The Cubs are in serious trouble," he said. Sheen is at tonight's game.
Cleveland entrepreneurs Bobby George of Corporate Management Group and Tony Madalone, owner of Fresh Brewed Tees, an apparel company, partnered to bring the actor to Cleveland.
Madalone said, "What an awesome opportunity for Cleveland. We're die-hard Clevelanders and wanted to do this for the fans. There's no better way to rally everyone than to bring Wild Thing to Cleveland!"
"Every time I watch Vaughn come out in "Major League," I get chills. Tony and I couldn't let this opportunity slip by us. We decided to "bring out Vaughn" must have been the entrepreneurial spirit in us, because we were both working on this simultaneously," Bobby George said.
They were helped by GT, a nationally known music producer, who has known Sheen for a while.
Sheen started the speculation early Wednesday when he posted a tweet that indicated he had packed his bag and was on his way:
Fans had reached out on social media asking for Sheen to throw out the first pitch at one of the World Series games. But that, of course, never happened.
Game 7 is ONLY on Fox 8!
