While it’s one of the big four sports, baseball fans have gotten a pretty raw deal when it comes to video games. For the last three years, there hasn’t been a triple-A multi-platform baseball game. Since 2K let their MLB license expire, the only triple-A baseball game has been Sony’s MLB: The Show series. Over the last couple of years, Major League Baseball has taken it upon themselves to try to fill the gap in the market by publishing their own multi-platform baseball game with a revival of the classic baseball franchise RBI Baseball.
The Toledo Mud Hens, the triple-A baseball affiliate of the Detroit Tigers, are celebrating Star Wars Day on May the 4th. While most baseball teams are likely to encourage fans to show up in costume or have a Star Wars character on hand to throw out the first pitch, the Mud Hens are taking things one step further.
This whole weekend will be Star Wars Weekend at Fifth Third Field with Saturday being “May the Fourth Be with You” day and Sunday being “Revenge of the Fifth.” Even better, they’re wearing snazzy Chewbacca-themed jerseys.
