Minor league baseball teams continue to impress with their creativity when it comes to creating special uniforms.

Earlier on Thursday, the Brooklyn Cyclones unveiled insane Star Wars-themed uniforms. Those uniforms might be tough to top, but the State College Spikes—the Single-A affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals—are pulling out all of the stops when honoring a classic television show.

On June 29, the Spikes will wear awesome The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air-themed uniforms. To put the night over the top, there will be a special guest in attendance. Alfonso Ribeiro, aka Carlton Banks, will make an appearance at the game.

Update: Monday, June 30 at 5:30 p.m. ET

As it turned out, both teams wore some pretty crazy uniforms:

Alfonso Ribeiro did indeed show up and even threw out the first pitch:

No Fresh Prince of Bel-Air night would be complete without the Carlton dance:

According to the Spikes' website, the jerseys will be auctioned off during the game to benefit Children's Miracle Network.

State College deserves a lot of credit for coming up with such an awesome promotion.
