Ricky "Wild Thing" Vaughn would be a mentor of sorts to a young player in the movie which would reunite many cast members from the original box office hit. It's 20 years later. Sheen's character has been out of baseball since he gave up the walk-off homerun in the seventh game of the World Series, but the team wants him back to mentor this young fire-balling relief pitching. In the new screenplay, Willie Hayes (Wesley Snipes) and Pedro Cerrano (Dennis Haysbert) are coaches of the team. There will be three new young characters to introduce a new generation of players to audiences. Rumor is that the young character in need of mentoring by Vaughn would be actually his long-estranged, out-of-wedlock son.
