Minor league team unveils best Star Wars jerseys yet

Friday June 12th, 2015

Star Wars night is one of the more common theme nights for minor league teams, especially as excitement builds for the latest installment of the popular space opera franchise releasing this Christmas.

With the flood of Star Wars events at ballparks it takes something really special to stand out, and the Potomac Nats have just that with the jerseys the team will be wearing on Sunday.

Instead of Jedi robes or R2D2, the team decided to focus more on how cool Billy Dee Williams is by putting Lando Calrissian on the front of the jerseys.

The back of the jerseys, which will be auctioned off during the game, features Calrissian's hometown of Cloud City against a blue sky backdrop.
