Baseball & R2-D2

R2-D2Baseball and R2D2. What do they have in common?

Well, not much, unless you attended the Tennessee Smokies baseball game on Star Wars Day - May the 4th (be with you).

My daughter and son-in-law went to the game that night, and took my 10-year-old grandson, Davie, with them. Little Davie was very excited because he heard that he was going to get to meet R2D2, Darth Vader, and a host of other characters from Star Wars, courtesy of Fountainhead College of Technology.

And meet them he did. He had his picture made with R2-D2 and Boba Fett and even got to dress as a rebel fighter pilot. He loved the baseball game and the fireworks too. He was so excited that he called me on the way home from the game to tell me all about it.

Thanks, Fountainhead College of Technology, for giving my little grandson an unforgettable baseball and Star Wars experience.
