Giants Freeze Wilson in Carbonite



    The Empire Strikes Ballpark

    The Giants are celebrating their favorite 'Wookiee', Brian Wilson! (Published Tuesday, Aug. 9, 2011)

    Sunday is "Star Wars" day at AT&T Park.

    The game has been a sell out for weeks, but there are still a couple hundred tickets available on Stu b Hub.

    If you are lucky enough to get your hands on tickets to this event, you can look forward to sitting in a special 'Star Wars' section, access to a pregame costume contest party and a limited edition Star Wars / Giants themed giveaway.

    The giveaway (pictured) is a statue that has an image of Yoda and Brian Wilson frozen in carbonite.

    And the Star Wars day is more than a ball game, the team is going to show a post-game screening of "The Empire Strikes Back" which ticket holders can watch from the field. 

    Do you think they'll rename AT&T park to "AT-AT" park for the day? 

    And if you are a Star Wars fan, you will enjoy a video produced by the MLB. It is a visit by Jeremy Affedlt to Lucas Films. He brought his two young son along with him. Click here for link.
