Major League Riddle – Corbin Bernsen & Corbin Burnes
Most people certainly recognize the man on the right – it’s Charlie Sheen playing Ricky “Wild Thing” Vaughn from the film Major League
The man on the left is Corbin Bernsen. He’s playing third baseman Roger Dorn
Despite the movie being about the Cleveland Indians, Major League was filmed at County Stadium in Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Charlie Sheen’s real name is Carlos Irwin Estevez
Milwaukee’s County Stadium was the same stadium the Milwaukee Braves used to play in before moving to Atlanta.
Not only are the Brewers in the playoffs this year, but so are both the Cleveland Indians and Atlanta Braves.

The 108 above is integral to the mathematics of the circle

When Corbin Burnes made his Major League debut earlier this season for the Brewers, Corbin Bernsen was 63 years, 306 days old, much like the gematria of the character he played, Roger
It’s been 36 years since the Brewers were in the World Series
The only World Series Milwaukee ever won was in ’57, the same year their current owner was born.
In Ordinal, Bernsen’s character’s name sums to 114
This year is the 114th World Series.
In Ordinal, Major League Baseball sums to 162
They play 162 games per season. Bernsen’s full name, neatly, sums to this same number:

There’s some more alignments with Bernsen’s character I want to document.
