Altoona Curve introduce Jabba the Hutt jerseys for Star Wars night

With the usual suspects already getting their own jerseys, the Altoona Curve decided to take a different approach to Star Wars night. Jabba the Hutt is most certainly an evil character, and, yet, he’s also one of the most iconic and beloved creatures among Star Wars fans. While Jabba’s gross tongue isn’t included on the jersey, the drool is a nice touch.

Following the game, the uniforms will be auctioned off, with proceeds benefiting the St. Vincent De Paul Society Soup Kitchen. There will also be a lightsaber battle during the post-game fireworks show.

Twins parody Star Wars trailer to promote Phil Hughes bobblehead

the Twins are giving away possibly the best bobblehead introduced thus far this season. The bobblehead will feature pitcher Phil Hughes dressed in jedi robes and holding a green lightsaber. The best part of the whole thing is that the team is using the hashtag #HughesTheForce to promote the event.
