According to a report from the Hollywood Reporter, Charlie Sheen will be the latest star to appear as a guest analyst on ESPN’s Baseball Tonight prior to an upcoming game between the St. Louis Cardinals and Cincinnati Reds.
While most recently Sheen is known for his well-publicized partying and his role on ‘Two and a Half Men.’ older folks better know him as the outlandish, hard-throwing pitcher from the ‘Major League’ movie franchise, Rick ‘Wild Thing’ Vaughn.
The ‘Major League’ movies weren’t the only baseball-themed films that he starred in as he also had a role in ‘Eight Men Out,’ a movie that chronicled the famed 1919 Chicago Black Sox scandal.
As if those weren’t reasons enough to have Sheen appear on the broadcast, with his father Martin growing up in Dayton, Ohio, he actually grew up a Reds fan which he still remains to this day. So with the game taking place in St. Louis, he might not be the most well-received celebrity on the show.
Sheen’s appearance will continue a recurring theme of having celebrities come on and offer their fan expertise as just last week prior to the Pirates-Cardinals contest in Pittsburgh, ‘Mad Men’ star Jon Hamm joined the crew for the hour before first pitch.
