When Major League came out back in 1989, baseball was one of the main focal points of my young life and, suffice it to say, I watched the movie constantly, almost obsessively. Over the past few years, there has been talk of the original cast getting back together for Major League 3. This is not to be confused with 1998's Major League III: Back to the Minors, which only featured two original cast members, Corbin Bernsen and Dennis Haysbert. Charlie Sheen even said in 2011 that he wants Los Angeles Dodgers relief pitcher Brian Wilson to be his pitching coach.
"You know, I talked to David S. Ward, and he's trying to get that going. He just wanted to know if I'd do it, and I said, 'Yeah, of course I'd be interested.' It was fun and, to get these guys back, it'd be great. He's very good with baseball, and he's also good with comedy and humor, so whatever it is, it'd be funny, I'm sure. He's a real talented writer, and as a director, he's already done this twice."
When I told the actor I used to watch Major League non-stop as a kid, he offered a story about an interaction with a fan he had recently.
"Listen, I've talked to guys who go, 'You know, if it's on and it's right in the middle of it, I just leave it on.' I'd go, 'Well you probably know all the lines,' and he'd go, 'Yeah!' It's just one of those things (Laughs). I was up in Connecticut recently and I was in a coffee shop with my son's father-in-law, and a guy walked by, maybe late 60s, early 70s, really healthy-looking, he comes up to the table and says, Major League, etc. and introduced us to his son, who pitched for the Mets. It's kind of like three or four generations now, and they just keep watching it because it's baseball and it's traditional. The game doesn't change that much, and it just gets passed on from father to son to grandson and so on and so forth. It will be around long after we're all dead."
