It’s that time of year when most teams around baseball dress their rookies up in costumes that usually are meant to embarrass the player coach or trainer. The Yankees veterans took it to another level though after Sunday’s loss against the Oakland Athletics, dressing up their rookies in Star Wars costumes.
Here’s the breakdown:
Chewbacca: Trainer Mark Littlefield.
Han Solo: Adam Warren.
Princess Leia: David Phelps.
Darth Vader: Melky Mesa.
Luke Skywalker: Cody Eppley.
Yoda: Supposedly, Kenji Nimura, Hiroki Kuroda’s translator. However, judging by the photo, I don’t know how he could actually be in there.
