Mookie Betts revealed as a Jedi Knight for Red Sox’ 2017 Star Wars Night at Fenway


The Boston Red Sox have finally confirmed what many fans were led to believe last season: Mookie Betts is a Jedi.

The 2016 American League MVP runner-up will get a special designation this season when the Sox host Star Wars Night at Fenway Park during their May 4 game against the Baltimore Orioles. In addition to Star Wars characters parading around the stadium for photos and friendly lightsaber duels, those who purchase tickets here will receive a limited edition Jedi Mookie Betts bobblehead.

Check it out below.


Other Red Sox theme nights at Fenway this season include Grateful Dead Night (April 11) and Billy Joel Night (August 1). The team is unveiling their special events all week on Twitter; check out the current rundown here.
