Charlie Sheen threw out the first pitch at the Padres game tonight. The reason according to our entertainment consultant mathewverygood is that he's promoting his new show on FX which is owned by Fox, the station that broadcasts Padres games to about a third of San Diego residents
Sheen was wearing his character Rick Vaughn's #99 on his Padres jersey.
Of course Dick Enberg comments that his fellow broadcaster Bob Uecker was the real star of Major League. Hardly. Sheen was billed 2nd on the cast. Uecker was billed 12th according to IMDB. Maybe he was the biggest star in Back to the Minors. Sheen was coming off starring in Academy Award winner Platoon while Uecker was billed second on Mr. Belvedere.
Sheen being Sheen made some sexual innuendos about the ball girls. "He says he has to be warmed up by a ball girl underground." Publicly he was more politically correct.
