World Series Game 7: Sorry, Charlie Sheen, but Jim Thome will throw out first pitch
Also, Travis Hafner will deliver the game ball
CLEVELAND -- Wednesday night, the Indians and Cubs will play the decisive Game 7 of the 2016 World Series at Progressive Field. The Cubs have rallied to tie the series 3-3 after the Indians took a 3-1 lead. Here's how you can watch Game 7.
Despite his lobbying, actor Charlie Sheen will not throw out the ceremonial first pitch prior to Game 7. That honor will instead go to Indians legend Jim Thome. Travis Hafner will deliver the game ball.
Sheen, who has basically zero ties to the Indians aside from starring in the film "Major League," has been trolling the team since the start of the series. He taunted the club during their Game 6 loss, then packed a bag and acted as if he was on his way to the park to throw out the first pitch in Game 7.
Anyway, Thome played for the Indians from 1991-2002, and again in 2011. He is the franchise's all-time home run leader with 337, and is second with 937 RBI. Only Earl Averill (1,084) had more. To call Thome beloved in Cleveland would be an understatement.
Hafner suited up for the Tribe from 2003-12, and he had some tremendously productive years in Cleveland before injuries set in. He is eighth on the franchise all-time home run list with 200.
