CLEVELAND, Oct. 27 (UPI) -- Ricky Vaughn is back.

Even though he wasn't asked to throw out the first pitch for the Cleveland Indians' first two games of the World Series, Charlie Sheen is channeling his Tribe pride.

Sheen played Ricky "Wild Thing" Vaughn in the 1989 movie "Major League." He posted a tweet including a video of him dressed up as the flamboyant fictional Cleveland Indians pitcher on Twitter Wednesday.

In the video, Vaughn's infamous introduction song plays on a projection screen before Sheen stands up wearing his token glasses and Indians jersey. "Go Tribe," Sheen says.

"Get me Vaughn," Sheen wrote in the caption.

Sheen is not on the roster for celebrities throwing out ceremonial pitches in Cleveland during the series.

"Major League continues to be the gift that keeps on giving! if called upon, I'd be honored," Sheen tweeted last week, regarding the idea of throwing out a first pitch.

The 1-1 series resumes Friday, when the Indians face the Chicago Cubs in Game 3 at 8:08 p.m. at Wrigley Field.
