Charlie Sheen hits a home run at Dodger Stadium

March 3, 2011 |  4:01 pm

He may be acting borderline deranged lately, but it's a shame Charlie Sheen's recent escapades are overshadowing one very real fact about him: He is a heck of a baseball player. Not only on screen as Ricky "Wild Thing" Vaughn in "Major League," but in real life as well.

Sheen was a standout pitcher and shortstop at Santa Monica High, and reminded everyone of his skills when he was at Dodger Stadium a couple of years ago to film a DirecTV commercial.

One of the crew challenged Sheen to hit a ball out of the park, and Sheen responded in impressive fashion, as the video below shows.
