Brooklyn Cyclones Rocking Darth Sith Jerseys With Made Up Star Wars Language

Screen Shot 2014-04-25 at 12.34.54 PM

Bens BizStar Wars theme jerseys are not a new phenomenon, but this year Minor League Baseball teams have really taken it up a notch. The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers are Luke’s father, the Kane County Cougars are makin’ Wookiee, and the Durham Bulls are 2D2 (just to name a few examples). But one team just might have trumped them all, and that team is the Brooklyn Cyclones. On the evening of August 2, the Cyclones will become the “Sithclones.” And on that night they will wear these jerseys, with “Brooklyn” written out in Aurebesh (the high galactic alphabet). Be afraid.

For more information on this Padawan of a kind initiative, I now direct you to Cyclones director of communications Billy Harner: Last season, the Cyclones held the first-ever Star Wars Night at MCU Park in front of a capacity crowd on Coney Island. It was such a success that we knew we needed to bring it back for the 2014 season. But how do you improve on a first-pitch from Darth Vader, light saber battles on the field, a meet and greet with Princess Leia, and a post-game family sleepover on the field? It was tough…but we found a way.  On Saturday, August 2nd, the first 2,500 fans in attendance will receive a Padawan Pee Wee bobblehead featuring our youngest mascot in the form of a Jedi Apprentice. But that’s not all. The team will also be wearing one-of-a-kind Sithclones Jerseys on the field that evening which will be raffled off to benefit local charities. The jerseys feature the emblem of the Sith Empire on the right sleeve, and has “Brooklyn” spelt across the chest in “Aurebesh.” 

Seinfeld Night? Great idea. Star Wars night wearing those Darth Sith abominations? For sure not. I mean I’m a pretty big nerd with this shit and even I think this sucks. Could you imagine what Ronnie Tagliaferri would do if he saw these unis? Good luck trying to explain to him that it says Brooklyn in “Aurebesh,” a fucking made up alien language. Dude would bash your fucking brains out with a bat in heartbeat.

Sorry Cyclones. You win some you lose some.
