Los Angeles fans complaining about Frank McCourt's ownership of the bankrupt Dodgers could end up hoping he finds a way to keep control.
Charlie Sheen is in the process of putting together a group to buy the Los Angeles Dodgers, reports the National Enquirer.
The actor, fired from his role on "Two and a Half Men" by CBS and Warner Bros., is a huge baseball fan -- he pitched and played shortstop for the Vikings of Santa Monica High School.
Sheen is best known to hardball fans for his character Ricky Vaughn in the iconic 1989 "Major League" film franchise with Tom Berenger, Corbin Bernsen, Wesley Snipes and Rene Russo.
The National Enquirer's Mike Walker says it's Sheen's life-long dream to be part of Major League Baseball, and the TV star has been making urgent calls to his Hollywood buddies to form a group of investors for a surprise run at the Dodgers. He's going to need lots of help: The actor has a net worth estimated at "only" $35 million after losing his CBS show. That's just 2.9 percent of financially strapped Frank McCourt's net worth of $1.2 billion, at least prior to his divorce from ex-wife Jamie.
Sure, he's a huge underdog, but how many other owners know about "Winning!" and have "tiger blood and Adonis DNA"?
Even if Carlos Irwin Estevez (his real name) is able to pony up enough cash to make a bid for the iconic Boys in Blue, it's unlikely the man who runs the National Pastime would let Sheen into his fraternity.
Some experts believe Bud Selig doesn't even want want NBA champion Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban to be a part of the owners circle.
If Sheen is not allowed or can't afford to buy the Dodgers, he could always try out for the team. The actor has hit a home run before at Dodger Stadium (below), something Dodger regulars Jamey Carroll, Aaron Miles and Tony Gwynn have failed to do this season in a combined 370 at bats at Chavez Ravine entering play Monday.
