Someone tell Progressive Field's sound person to make sure he or she has X's cover of the Troggs' "Wild Thing," because Ricky Vaughn is returning to the Cleveland Indians.

Or at least tiger-blooded actor Charlie Sheen, who played the ex-con pitcher in the 1989 baseball flick Major League, tweeted this:

That's a little statue of Jobu and Vaughn's glasses in tow, with everything one would need for Game 7 of the World Series against the Chicago Cubs—aside, of course, from tickets.

Sheen has been lobbying from afar to take part in the Indians' potential for World Series championship since 1948. Two weeks ago, he tweeted that he'd be "honored" to take part in the festivities.

He even spliced together his own hype video …

… then called those in charge "idiotically guilty" of preventing him from throwing the first pitch on Tuesday night, when the Indians got crushed in Game 6.

Have the Indians finally come to their senses and allowed the former California Penal League star back on their grass? Probably not.

Better start praying to Jobu.
