Former Indians Kenny Lofton, Carlos Baerga to throw first pitches

Kenny Lofton and Carlos Baerga, two Cleveland stars from the 1990s, will throw out ceremonial first pitches at the World Series.

Lofton, the fleet-footed center fielder, will have the honor before Game 1 as the Indians host the Chicago Cubs. Baerga, a three-time All-Star second baseman, will handle the duties before Game 2.

Indians fans had pushed on social media to have actor Charlie Sheen, who played hard-throwing pitcher Ricky "Wild Thing" Vaughn in the movie "Major League," throw out the first pitch. However, the Indians had already decided on Lofton and Baerga, who played together on Cleveland's 1995 World Series team.
