It's been 25 years since the release of "Major League," one of the best baseball movies ever made, and for sure the funniest. At the time, the movie functioned as a kind of fantasy for one of the league's most moribund franchises in Cleveland, but since the film came out, the Indians have been on the up and up, including an American League pennant in 1997 and a surprise playoff run last season. They've even got uniforms and everything. So it's only fitting that, on the movie's 25th anniversary, MLB would find a way to commemorate Wild Thing, Willie Mays Hayes and Pedro Cerrano. What you probably didn't expect was that that tribute would come from Red Sox backup catcher and noted thespian David Ross, who really throws himself into his one-man version of the movie.
