The plot of Major League II takes place a year after the Cleveland Indiansâ American League Eastern Division Championship victory in the first movie. Led by manager Lou Brown (James Gammon), the team has lost its spark and finds itself struggling with injuries and morale. Their ace pitcher Rick Vaughn( Charlie Sheen) has lost his mojo, unable to throw his infamous fastball, and has quickly become one of the worst pitchers in the league. The team is also facing financial troubles, with the team's owner, Roger Dorn (Corbin Bernsen), threatening to sell the team if they do not improve their performance. To add to their problems, an arrogant and wealthy outfielder, Jack Parkman (David Keith), joins the team, causing tensions with the rest of the players.

It shows the ups and downs of the players' personal lives as well, with Pedro Cerrano (Dennis Haysbert) dealing with voodoo curses and Willie Mays Hayes (Omar Epps) developing a love interest with the team's new assistant manager, Lynn (Michelle Burke). Major League II is full of witty one-liners, hilarious gags, and slapstick humor. Charlie Sheenâs character offers a lot of comic relief while still portraying a sympathetic character who has lost his way.
