Giants' Star Wars Day Giving Out Carbonite Brian Wilsons (Seriously)

by DannyGallagher   August 11, 2011 at 3:00PM  |  Views: 610


Baseball is full of disastrous promotional "nights" like Cleveland's infamous "Ten Cent Beer Night" and the Chicago White Sox's epic "Disco Demolition Night." This isn't one of them.

San Francisco has concocted perhaps the greatest promotional game night in the history of Major League Baseball with their Star Wars event, a day game on September 5 that is selling out fast.

The event will feature a special "Star Wars" section for equally rabid fans of the Giants and the popular sci-fi series, a pre-game costume party for select fans (in costume, of course) and a limited edition keepsake of the Giants' insane pitcher Brian Wilson encased in carbonite, assuming that his mighty Norse-god beard that can be contained in something as "mortal" as carbonite.
