Chewbacca Mom coming to Trop for Star Wars night
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.
