It’s hard to believe that the classic baseball comedy, "Major League," is 25-years-old. Filmed largely in Milwaukee, everyone here of a "certain age" seems to have a story to tell about the making of the movie.
Actor Corbin Bernsen has many stories to share. He played Indians third baseman Roger Dorn in the film, and he’s in Milwaukee tonight for a reunion of sorts. At 7 p.m. tonight, he’ll make an appearance at the Milwaukee Admirals game, signing autographs on the 200 level of the BMO Harris Bradley Center.
In this podcast, we caught up with Bernsen to talk about the filming of "Major League," his memories of Milwaukee, Charlie Sheen, and what he’s working on now. Bernsen said he wants to see all the extras at the game tonight to stand up and sing "Wild Thing."

And Bernsen said he’s seen a script for "Major League 4." He discussed it all here.
