Baseball superfan and Major League star Charlie Sheen has landed his dream job – as a sports broadcaster.

The actor has been asked to be a guest analyst on ESPN’s “Baseball Tonight” show on Sunday during a live pre-game broadcast from Cincinnati, Ohio before the hometown Reds take on the St. Louis Cardinals.

Sheen, who was a star high school pitcher in California, is a lifelong Reds fan.

He’s not the only Hollywood star to join the “Baseball Tonight” crew this season – Cardinals fan Jon Hamm was a guest earlier this month.
