For the first time in Coca-Cola Field history, the Buffalo Bisons will welcome Jabba the Hutt.
The Buffalo Bisons unveiled their jersey for the Star Wars Night X, one of the club's signature events, scheduled for June 3 when the Herd hosts the Charlotte Knights at Coca-Cola Field. The jersey will feature the Tatooine gangster from the Star Wars franchise.

The event has been sold out for four straight seasons, and this year's event has fewer than 3,000 tickets remaining with a limited number of four-packs left.
Character appearances from The North Ridge and the 501st and Rebel Legion will begin when the gates open at 4 p.m. for the 6:05 scheduled first pitch. Sales of laser swords will benefit Compass House along with the proceeds form a game-worn and autographed jersey auction to be held online at Bisons.com and in the ballpark.
The battle for control of the ballpark rages on between the Jedi Knights and the Dark Side and will played out during between-inning movies before the final postgame on-field battle and fireworks show.
