Akron Aeros Showcase Star Wars-Themed Jerseys

Not too many words are needed to describe the photo below.

The Double-A Akron Aeros debuted the new uniforms for a special “Star Wars Night” yesterday at Canal Park. Combined with Star Wars fireworks and whatever “Jersey Pillow Giveaway Night” means, the team was able to attract 5,375 fans (h/t @nextyearinCLE), a pretty solid attendance for an August Saturday in downtown Akron.

Wearing the new uniforms, the team defeated the New Hampshire Fisher Cats by the score of 8-3. The jersey design above is via a press release on the team’s website, while outfielder Thomas Neal and reliever Shawn Armstrong both posted photos to their Twitter accounts.

Now, if only the team could keep up the alliteration by changing its name to the Akron Admiral Ackbars. That’s something I think everyone could get behind.
