Reno Aces celebrate Star Wars with Chewbacca bandolier uniforms

RRRRrrrrrghgh!

Why yes, those Reno Aces jerseys sure do look nice.

The Arizona Diamondbacks’ Triple-A squad celebrated Star Wars night on Saturday by wearing a set of alternate uniforms depicting Chewbacca’s bandolier.

You know Chewbacca, the Wookie from Star Wars.

The Aces paired the Wookie-fur-colored brown jerseys with white pants in the subtle, yet creative way to celebrate the movie series.

And what timing: By beginning his rehab assignment in Triple-A on Saturday, D-backs center fielder A.J. Pollock was among the lucky players to suit up for Star Wars night. He went 1-for-2 with a double and a walk in five innings before he was lifted per the limited return.

In the end, the Las Vegas 51s took C-3P0’s advice.

They let the Wookies win.
