Pop quiz: You would only fly to Toledo to watch a minor league baseball game if a) the players were wearing Chewbacca jerseys, b) 3,000 fans got free kazoos for a postgame kazoo-along to the Star Wars theme song, c) Star Wars sound effects were played during at-bats, or d) you would never fly to Toledo to watch a minor league baseball game.
True story, though: the Toledo Mud Hens are hosting Star Wars Weekend during this Saturday and Sunday's homestand, complete with all of the aforementioned Star Wars awesomeness, plus they'll have characters from the 501st Legion (please be Lando, please be Lando, please be Lando…), a costume photo booth, Wars-themed food and drink (Yoda... Soda anyone?), and a Saturday-only firework show.
