Minor League Baseball team the Toledo Mud Hens took on the garb of the legendary hero in the form of Zelda inspired jerseys for their game on Friday, as part of their Geekend Weekend promotion. The ‘Save The Princess’ uniforms, whilst avoiding any direct mention of Zelda to keep the lawyers happy, took their cue from Link’s iconic green tunic. Unfortunately they were unable to draw upon the power of the goddesses during the game, falling as they did to an 11-16 defeat to Indianapolis.
The jerseys were auctioned off after the game to raise funds for the Helping Hens Charitable Fund. The weekend has also featured a symphony orchestra playing music from Star Wars and Harry Potter amongst others, and will wrap up with a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles pizza party this evening.
