May the Fourth Be With You

1521_sw_han_leia_hand_towels_inuseThere’s lots of merchandise you can buy to make you feel closer to the franchise on Star Wars Day, May the Fourth. I’m partial to ThinkGeek’s romantic towel set.

I also always look forward to the Star Wars themed minor league baseball promotions on this date, although as Ben Hill explains on, there are none on the exact date in 2015 because clubs feel it’s a waste to run a promotion for a Monday crowd.

Several clubs solved that problem by celebrating May the Fourth over the weekend — the Round Rock Express (Friday), Jackson Generals (Saturday) and Mississippi Braves (Saturday). Here are the Star Wars jerseys team members wore on those days.

  1. I’m crushed. No glowing baseball bats with sound effects? I’m a Bahston fan, so I want a red one
