Sorry, America: Ricky Vaughn won’t throw out the first pitch at a World Series game

Perhaps the most anticipated moment of the World Series in the eyes of baseball-movie lovers won’t happen.

Charlie Sheen, who portrayed Cleveland Indians fireballer Ricky “Wild Thing” Vaughn in “Major League” and “Major League II,” tweeted Thursday that he would be honored to throw out the first pitch of an upcoming Indians World Series game.

“Major League continues to be the gift that keeps on giving! If called upon, I’d be honored,” Sheen informed his more than 11 million followers.

Unfortunately, America will deprived of the honor of witnessing Sheen walk to the mound in his leather vest and black skull and crossbones glasses to the tune of The Troggs’ 1966 hit song “Wild Thing” — because Sheen’s services won’t be necessary, according to the Associated Press.

Major League Baseball already made its choice to throw out the first pitches for Games 1 and 2, which will be hosted in Cleveland on Tuesday and Wednesday. A spokesman told the AP that the league collaborated with the Indians to identify “former franchise greats” to do the honors. An official announcement is expected early next week.

The Indians will also host Games 6 and 7 on Nov. 1 and 2 if necessary.
