    Star Wars

    I need to know. It's actually starting to piss me off. Why does the MLB have such a boner for Star Wars? It seems like every ballpark has some sort of Star Wars night. Is it something that teams like to do or is it something I'm just not understanding?

    Why? Because people like to dress up as star wars characters and it brings people in.

    It's like 70's night.

    People ask me, "Why here? Why Kentucky?", I said "Why not"? It can be done here. It will be done here. Lay the foundation. Recruit and develop. Prepare to win. Day by day. Play by play. A new era of high performance. Why Kentucky? Why not? -Mark Stoops

    The only reason why I noticed is because I 'like' MLB on Facebook and every week or two there's another "CAPTION THIS" picture with either Darth Vader or the Storm Troopers at yet another Ballpark.

    Because star wars is awesome. Why do you think football has cheerleaders? Because they're ****ing awesome.

    Really? Seems like a minor league gimmick to me, but I guess it's sort of fun in a dorky way.

    I love Star Wars, but the part that was pissing me off is why every team seems to have a Star Wars night. That's all

    I'd say that the teams do it to try to attract more kids (and their parents) to the games.
