The Cleveland Indians punched their ticket to the World Series by beating the Toronto Blue Jays 4-1 in the American League Championship Series. Cleveland hasn’t won a World Series since 1948, and this will be their first appearance in the Fall Classic since 1997. This is obviously a huge deal for Cleveland, so Charlie Sheen wants to bring back his legendary Ricky “Wild Thing” Vaughn character from Major League to throw out the first pitch at Game 1 of the World Series.
This NEEDS to happen. Not only will the Cleveland fans go absolutely bonkers seeing Ricky Vaughn on the hill, the Indian players are huge fans of Major League.
Here’s their shrine to Jobu, similar to the one that Pedro Cerrano would pray to.
And they also went to Jobu to try to break Yan Gomes out of a slump.
Game 1 of the World Series will take place in Cleveland at Progressive Field on Tuesday, October 25, and if the Indians reenact this classic scene for Vaughn’s first pitch, I guarantee they win by 100 runs.
