Charlie Sheen arrived in Cleveland for Game 7 of the World Series Wednesday after sending social media in a frenzy with two back-to-back tweets regarding the decisive game.

Watch Sheen's arrival here:

 

During Game 6, Sheen, aka Rick “Wild Thing” Vaughn, tweeted: 

who ever is
idiotically guilty of
preventing me from
throwing out the 1st pitch,
in any of these home gms,
well,
jus sayin.

(7-1 top 5)

He was referring to that fact that apparently no one called him up and asked him to throw the ceremonial first pitch for one of the World Series games, as he had offered to do. 

The Indians ended up falling to the Cubs Tuesday night 9-3. 

By Wednesday, Sheen had changed his tune. He tweeted: 

FEAR NOT,
"BELIEVE"LAND!!

My bag is packed,
and help is on the way!!

So, is he really coming to Cleveland?

ESPN first reported Wednesday afternoon that Sheen would be flown in by Bobby George of Corporate Management Group and Tony Madalone, owner of apparel company Fresh Brewed Tees. Madalone confirmed this information to News 5. 

"What an awesome opportunity for Cleveland," Madalone said. "We're die-hard Clevelanders and wanted to do this for the fans. There's no better way to rally everyone than to bring Wild Thing to Cleveland!"

"Every time I watch Vaughn come out in Major League I get chills," added George. "Tony and I couldn't let this opportunity slip by us. We decided to 'bring out Vaughn' must have been the entrepreneurial spirit in us, because we were both working on this simultaneously." 

Sheen will not, however, be throwing out the ceremonial first pitch.

The Indians announced Wednesday that Hall of Famer Jim Thome would be taking the mound before the game.
