Lando Calrissian vs. Cal Ripken


CHT2D32UMAAgi6wAs the minor league season winds down, it’s time to update you on the latest in minor league theme jerseys. A few weeks ago, milb.com held it’s first-ever “Jersey Joust” competition. Folks could go online and vote for their favorite jersey. Pictures of all 124 jerseys in the contest are on the website.

And the winner was… the Potomac Nationals Lando Clarissian jersey!  According to the P-Nats’ general manager, Josh Olerud (as quoted on milb.com): “‘When our players got it, some of them are so young that they didn’t even know who the character or actor was. Once they did a little research, they thought it was the coolest thing ever.'”

I agree the Lando jerseys are pretty cool. But last night, another team wore even cooler jerseys: the Aberdeen Ironbirds donned Cal Ripken 2131 jerseys in honor of the 20th anniversary of Cal’s iron man streak. Of course, it was only fitting since the team is owned by Cal, they are located in Cal’s home town, and they play in Ripken Stadium.

Sorry, Billy Dee Williams, but Cal is way cooler!
