Before he became America’s bad boy, actor Charlie Sheen was a decent well-mannered youngster. Throughout his years in high-school he expressed his serious interests in two fields: acting and baseball.
As a baseball player Charlie Estevez, as he was known back then, was the star of the field. He played a pitcher as well as a shortstop. His throws averaged 80-90 mph/h and according to his former coaches, he could have made it to the professional baseball league if only he had chosen that path. Unfortunately, he got kicked out of high-school and passed up on the opportunity of full baseball scholarship in Kansas University.
His love for baseball continued throughout his acting career as well. At one point he even bought 2,615 tickets for the outfield seats of a California Angels game. The usual reason for a celebrity to do something like that is normally with charitable intentions but Charlie and buddies of his were actually hoping to catch a ball. By buying all the tickets Charlie increased his shot in actually catching a home-run ball. More specifically, Sheen was hoping that the baseball player Cecil Fielder would hit a ball at his direction.
Unfortunately, there were no home runs that day and Charlie exited the stadium empty-handed.
