We've seen a Minor League baseball team wear a Star Wars-themed jersey before, but now we have a squad zeroing in on one specific character in the Star Wars universe. 

The Durham Bulls, the Triple-A affiliate of the Tampa Bay Rays, will wear these R2-D2 jerseys for their Star Wars-themed game night on May 4, the unofficial day celebrating the popular movie series (with the slogan "May the 4th be with you").

Update: Tuesday, March 25 at 7 p.m. ET

Apparently, this Star Wars trend is spreading to other teams. As MLB Cut4 points out, Darth Vader and Chewbacca jerseys will also be making their respective debuts this season.
