On August 30 the Kane County Cougars, the Chicago Cubs Class A affliate, will go with the Wookiee look on its second “Star Wars” Night of the year.
Between now and then the Cougars are also holding a Superhero night on July 25, and a Harry Potter Night on August 1 – including a Golden Snitch Giveaway to the first 1,500 fans under 15. Curiously, Harry Potter Night is also “Peanut Free Night” —
No peanuts or products with peanuts will be allowed into the stadium so that our friends with peanut allergies can enjoy a baseball game!
I guess that’s one night they’ll skip singing “Take Me Out To The Ballgame” (or at least the line “Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack…”)
Lots of other clubs are having sf/fantasy/comics promotions this season. Here are a couple more examples of team jerseys fans have seen the players wearing.
