Did I not say at the beginning of the playoffs there was coding in the film Major League for a Cubs and Indians World Series in 2016? If you missed that video, I'll link it below. Charlie Sheen, AKA Wild Thing, wears the #99 in that movie. Illinois = 99
Also significant, is the name 'Major League'.
