Yes, the alternate jersey thing is getting out of hand, especially in minor league baseball. But we have to admit, some of these Star Wars-inspired unis we’re seeing these days are pretty freakin’ awesome.
The Brooklyn Cyclones raised the stakes on the Lucas-centric jersey front last weekend when they took to Twitter to unveil their uniforms adorned with the baddest Sith Lord this side of Vader — Darth Maul.

Not bad…but as you can see, the Cyclones used the occasion to also take a shot at some other minor league franchises who have tried out the Star Wars jersey thing, including the Kane County Cougars’ Chewbacca look, the Durham Bulls and Sacramento RiverCats R2-D2 unis, and the Darth Vader adorned jerseys of the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers.
Well, the Timber Rattlers wouldn’t take that lying down…
