Photo: Further proof the Yankees are indeed the 'Evil Empire'
The good fun involved in rookie hazing continued around Major League Baseball on Sunday as the New York Yankees made their rookies dress as characters from the "Star Wars" films.
Pictured here is Adam Warren as Hans Solo, David Phelps as Princess Leia, Melky Mesa as Darth Vader, and Cody Eppley as Luke Skywalker. The dudes in the Chewbacca and Yoda outfits are assistant trainer Mark Littlefield and Hiroki Kurdoa's translator Kenji Nimura, respectively.
I believe this photo ends any and all doubt as to who the "Evil Empire" really is.
