Many major and minor league baseball teams have turned to “Star Wars” for promotional events. This can range from appearances by characters to special giveaways.
The San Francisco Giants — possibly because of their proximity to the George Lucas “Star Wars” hub of Sywalker Ranch — have given away several “Star Wars” items that have become very collectible.
