In a trend that started a few seasons back, Minor League Baseball teams are embracing their weirdness by going full theme-night every once in a while. Teams donned Seinfeld jerseys, still plan on saluting Saved by the Bell, and almost every team around honored Star Wars. But while many seem to go for the more-is-better strategy of theme jerseys, the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs are going to honor the original Star Wars trilogy with a simple and understated Han-in-carbonite look.
The Iron Pigs name is miniaturized and minimized, putting the focus on Han Solo trying to escape through the chest of the Iron Pigs players. They’ll don these unis on May 8th against the Gwinnett Braves and then just wait to be topped.
