Mud Hens celebrate 'Star Wars' via kazoo

May, 4, 2012

The Toledo Mud Hens, the AAA affiliate of the Detroit Tigers, have joined in the chorus of those celebrating "Star Wars" Day on Friday, May 4. But they're bringing the kazoos.

The team is handing out 5,000 of the tiny instruments for fans to perform the movie's famed theme song, written, incidentally by baseball fan John Williams.

In addition to the postgame kazoofest, the Toledo Blade reports that the team will be offering special themed concessions as well:

There will be Yoda Sodas, Darth Chocolate Brownie Sundaes, and the ballpark's Tatoo-wieners (hot dogs), which are named after the desert home world of Luke Skywalker.
