TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

It's a combination many didn't see coming: Star Wars and minor league baseball. But it's a tradition that's been going on for awhile. It all starts with a clever play on words that marry a day... with a popular phrase from the movie:

"May the Fourth Be With You"

So this Saturday, May fourth, the Hens are will wear special "Chewbacca" themed uniforms during the Star Wars themed game. (For the uninitiated, Chewbacca is Han Solo's hair covered co-pilot in the original Star Wars trilogy.)

The Hens will have a wide variety of Star Wars themed special events throughout the weekend, including appearances by Star Wars characters, Star Wars themed face painting, a Star Wars costume photo booth, Star Wars-themed food and beverage items, Star Wars-themed postgame fireworks and more.

The fun will continue Sunday with "Revenge of the Fifth."  

  • The special jerseys will be auctioned off after each game to benefit local charities.

  • Tickets are available at MudHens.com or by calling 419-724-HENS.
