Celebrity First Pitch – Chewbacca

How often are you able to see a 7-foot tall Wookie throw out the ceremonial first pitch prior to the start of a baseball game??  That’s what I thought – not often at all!!

So if you get that kind of unique chance, you might as well go all out and see the most famous Wookie of them all…. 

Yep, Chewbacca!!!  Enjoy.

2 notable takes from this video.  #1 – I didn’t know ‘Chewy’ was a southpaw.  #2 – I cannot believe that Hans Solo is still with Princess Leah..  🙂

Celebrity First Pitch – Darth Vader

 Jeez, and I thought Allen Iverson traveled with a large entourage.  He’s got nothing on Darth Vader!!!  When asked to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at a minor league game, Vader made sure to bring his posse which includes several of his closest storm trooper buddies…  There is no way that these guys would have gotten past security at a major league ballpark!!

He’s probably going to have to take his robe to the dry cleaners now, clay stains!!!
