Charlie Sheen Took Steroids For Major League

And with that, Cleveland is officially out of heroes.

Just kidding. Sports Illustrated talked to a host of people involved with Major League — writer, director, stars — for a little oral history on the movie as it turns 22. It's dynamite stuff filled with plenty of interesting nuggets on one of the best baseball movies ever made. Seriously, go read it.

Our favorite tidbit:

[L]et's just say that I was enhancing my performance a little bit. It was the only time I ever did steroids. I did them for like six or eight weeks. You can print this, I don't give a fuck. My fastball went from 79 to like 85.

We know what we'll be watching when we get home tonight.
