There’s a pretty big game on Saturday — and we’re not talking about Michigan vs Michigan State.

It’s Star Wars Night when the Toledo Walleyes take on the Kalamazoo Wings. You’re thinking “Big whoop! The Tigers have a Star Wars Night.”

But here’s the best part — the Walleyes will be wearing “X-Wing Pilot”-themed jerseys and the Wings will be wearing “Darth Vader”-themed jerseys.

After the game, fans will get a chance to bid on the jerseys with proceeds going toward the National MS Society and Wounded Warrior Project.

What other movie uniforms should be incorporated into jerseys?  How about the Ghostbusters jumpsuits for a baseball uniform?
