Charlie Sheen Reportedly Paid $6,537.50 for Shot at Catching Cecil Fielder Home Run in 1996

As actor Charlie Sheen continues his "winning" ways, stories of the star's hell-raising past are sprouting up everywhere.

On Tuesday, Business Insider dug up the one below from a 1996 Sports Illustrated "Scorecard" excerpt.

"Actor Charlie Sheen paid $6,537.50 to buy most of the seats behind the left field fence in Anaheim Stadium last Friday night, hoping to catch a home run ball. Sheen and three friends sat alone, 20 rows up, and watched the California Angels-Detroit Tigers game, on the chance that someone — preferably Tigers slugger Cecil Fielder — might postmark a round-tripper to their vicinity. "I didn't want to crawl over the paying public," said Sheen, the hell-raising star of Hot Shots! Part Deux and other cinematic landmarks, in explaining why he bought up the 2,615 seats. "I wanted to avoid the violence." Alas, no one homered and the Sheen crew went ball-less."

Keeping rocking, Wild Thing.
