In case you haven’t noticed, the past several years for Charlie Sheen have not been all that great. Just recently, the struggling actor had to sell Babe Ruth’s 1927 World Series ring and his copy of the 1919 sales contract that traded the Bambino from the Red Sox to the Yankees — together worth over $1 million — to pay for lawsuits related to his contraction of HIV.
But speaking of baseball, back in Sheen’s heydey, he was one of the most famous actors in the world, starring in such iconic roles as Ricky “Wild Thing” Vaughn in the classic comedy Major League.
Gracing the mound to punk rock band X’s cover of The Troggs’ Wild Thing, Sheen’s Vaughn is probably the most badass pitcher in movie history. Sheen now? Definitively not so badass. But let’s remember him in better days.
