The Cleveland Indians host the Chicago Cubs in Game 7 of the World Series Wednesday night and it looks like Charlie Sheen will be in attendance.

Sheen's tweet shows a picture of his bag packed with a beer, beef jerky, cigarettes, a baseball, what appears to be an Indians hat and of course, his black-rimmed glasses with the skull and crossbones over the bridge that he wore in the movie "Major League."

Later Wednesday, Sheen did a quick interview on his jet with TMZ.

With Cleveland in the World Series fans have been wondering if the actor – who starred as Ricky Vaughn in the movie – would throw out a first pitch at Progressive Field. But he's not. That job belongs to the Indians' all-time home run hitter (and former Twins player), Jim Thome.

It's unclear if he'll actually throw out the first pitch, but TMZ is reporting that Sheen is flying his private jet to Cleveland and he has "prime seating" behind the Indians dugout for the game.

Sheen tweeted this during Game 6 of the World Series on Tuesday night when Cleveland was getting rocked by Chicago.

The Indians have yet to say who's throwing out the first pitch for Game 7 tonight, but it appears the Wild Thing is ready.
