Candace Payne, became an Internet sensation with a video she shot of herself putting on a Chewbacca mask while sitting in her car - and then laughing hysterically for a long time.

The Rays are bringing in The Chewbacca Mom to throw out the first pitch for Saturday's Star Wars night, which could really make it a laugher.

The mom, Candace Payne, became an Internet sensation with a video she shot of herself putting on a Chewbacca mask while sitting in her car - and then laughing hysterically for a long time. The Facebook video has since gotten more than 150-million views.

Payne, a self-described "stay at home" mom who enjoys "the simple things" has done the talk-show circuit, and now is making appearances. She will be accompanied Saturday by fans dressed as Star Wars characters.

The Rays also are giving out a Chris Archer Stormtrooper bobblehead as part of the night's activities.
