The famed Cleveland Indians cap worn by Charlie Sheen’s Ricky “Wild Thing” Vaughn character in “Major League” and the actual screen and game-used pitched ball from the climactic scene where Vaughn strikes out his nemesis with a 101 mph fastball are up for sale in the Lelands Fall 2019 Classic Auction, which runs through Dec. 6.
“Whenever people would come over to my house they always asked about trying on the cap,” Sheen recalled.
A standout pitcher and shortstop in high school, Sheen said his fastball was clocked at “84/85 mph” on the set of Major League, and that he “was in the high 80s” in high school.
“I remember my arm being completely rung out from all of the pitching that I did throughout the movie and that final game sequence that we shot,” said Sheen. “That was the last time I was ever able to throw a baseball with that kind of velocity from the mound.”
Bidding on the cap was at $4,594 as of Sunday while the ball was at $2,357. Bidding runs through Friday, December 6.
Military Appreciation night jerseys worn by the Boston Bruins last month are on the block.
MeiGray Auctions is offering 21 of the specially-themed black warmups in an auction that runs through December 18. Jerseys worn by Zdeno Chara, Patrice Bergeron, Charlie Coyle, David Pastrnak, Brad Marchand and others are up for bid.
All are registered into the Boston Bruins-MeiGray Game-Worn Jersey Authentication Program.
