Wild Thing Took Steroids
Actor Charlie Sheen tells Sports Illustrated in its latest issue that he took steroids "for like six or eight weeks" while filming the 1989 movie "Major League." He adds that the performance-enhancing drugs helped his fastball go from 79 mph to 85 mph.
Sad day to find out the Wild Thing was no different then all the other steroid users of the 80's/90's. Actually, I find this whole thing hilarious, because it is very unnecessary since he really never looked like the was throwing all that hard in the movie. If this is true it does show how steroids can improve performance. I think we all know that by now, but every once in a while you'll get some idiot that doesn't think it has much affect. Throw 6 MPH harder is a big deal, going from 92 to 98 is a big difference, but anyways steroids are hopefully gone for good.
