Darth Dickey

You may remember that Mets pitcher R.A. Dickey is a bit of a Star Wars fan. (He brought a full Darth Vader costume to Citi Field and wore it in the clubhouse to the amusement of his teammates, and warmed up to Vader’s Imperial March theme before most of his starts last year.)

Well, now you can buy your own “Dickey Strikes Back” t-shirt from The7Line for $20. (A portion of the sale price will be donated to charity.)

I like it. I’m not sure that I’d actually wear it, but I like it.

For those curious about Dickey’s offiseason plan to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, you can read about his arrival in Tanzania at the New York Times Baseball Blog.
