We don't know what it is about minor league teams in Toledo and Star Wars jerseys, but we love this trend.
In May, the Triple-A Toledo Mud Hens donned these neat Chewbacca digs and now the Toledo Walleye (who share an ownership group with the Mud Hens) of the ECHL will be wearing a new set of Star Wars jerseys:
The Walleye took the Mud Hens' idea one step further, as during the game Saturday their opponent will also be wearing Star Wars themed jerseys. The Walleye, of course, will be the good guys with Luke Skywalker’s X-Wing Fighter uniform. Meanwhile the visiting Kalamazoo K-Wings will have on Darth Vader sweaters. The speciality jerseys will be auctioned off after the game, with proceeds going to charity.
Like the Mud Hens, the Walleye will also have other Star Wars-related activities for fans to enjoy.
