Really Wild Thing: Charlie Sheen Admits to Steroid Use

by at . Comments

Charlie Harper may soon be killed off Two and a Half Men, but this is far more troubling:

Charlie Sheen has officially murdered our belief in the fastball of Ricky "Wild Thing" Vaughn.

As Ricky Vaughn

The pitcher arrived on the scene in 1989's Major League, straight out of the California penal league. He was armed with an impressive, albeit erratic, right arm.

Now, though, Sheen has lifted the curtain on how he prepared for one of his most iconic roles. In an interview with Sports Illustrated, the actor says went on a steroid cycle for "six to eight weeks" and it helped. He told the magazine:

"You can print this, I don't give a f-ck. My fastball went from 79 [mph] to like 85."

The Indians did win the pennant in Vaughn's rookie season, but he may now be more shamed than fellow baseball cheats Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds.
