There are plenty of folks out there who might be considered baseball nerds, pouring over obscure stats that go far deeper into the game than the number of home runs, RBIs or counting a player’s batting average could ever offer.

There are others who count themselves among the legions of Star Wars junkies, memorizing more alien races and planets than most even knew were in any of the movies in the first place.

Now, the Toledo Mud Hens will be giving both groups of people the very best of both worlds with these Wookiee uniforms. The minor league squad will be sporting their Chewbacca (Han Solo’s first mate is of the Wookiee race, for those wondering) jerseys for their Star Wars promo over the weekend of May 4 and 5.
