Charlie Sheen seen shagging with the Reds

MLB.com Reds reporter Mark Sheldon captured this image of Charlie Sheen catching balls during batting practice.

Before the game between the Cincinnati Reds and the San Diego Padres today, celebrity Reds fan Charlie Sheen was in the outfield, catching fly balls during batting practice.

Sheen has been a Reds fan for a good long time, hosting a couple notorious parties with the team, once in 1990 and another in 1992. Sheen is more famous now for his drug-fueled rants and erratic, sometimes violent, behavior that saw him kicked off the highly rated “Two and a Half Men” television show.

Given his checkered past, I do have to wonder why the Reds are choosing to associate with him. After all, this is a guy who constantly uses cocaine and other illegal drugs, and also loves to threaten to kill the women in his life. Denise Richards, Brooke Mueller, and Capri Anderson have all been reported to be recipients of Sheen’s anger and threats, with Mueller and Anderson both having been strangled by Sheen.

Maybe this wasn’t the Reds’ decision–Sheen did throw out a ceremonial first pitch–but I don’t like seeing the Reds associated with illegal drugs and beating up women.
