Fresh Prince, Darth Maul, zombies: minor league teams unveil more wacky jerseys

Minor League Baseball teams continue to dig deeper into the theme jersey craze, and on Thursday there were three unveilings of note — a "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" jersey, a Darth Maul jersey offering a new take on "Star Wars" nights and a bloody zombie apocalypse jersey.

These join "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," "Ghostbusters" and a plethora of "Star Wars" jerseys as notables on the schedule for 2014. Let's have a look at the latest:

1. YO HOLMES, TO STATE COLLEGE
The State College Spikes, the Single-A affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals are hosting Carlton Banks himself, actor Alfonso Ribeiro, on June 29 and they'll be looking fly in these "Fresh Prince" jerseys. If there's no video of Ribeiro doing The Carlton Dance wearing one of these jerseys, the Internet will never forgive you, Spikes. Don't disappoint us.

2. BROOKLYN CYCLONES HAVE A MENACING 'STAR WARS' JERSEY
We've been there and done that with "Star Wars" theme jerseys. Some teams have even used the same "Star Wars" jersey. The Brooklyn Cyclones, a Single-A affiliate for the Mets, have an offering for their Aug. 2 "Star Wars" night that's definitely different. Their jersey features Darth Maul from the unfortunate first prequel "The Phantom Menace" and it looks like something the Insane Clown Posse would wear at a concert. At least, it's not a Jar Jar Binks jersey.

**points for trash-talking the other "Star Wars" jersey people, though, Brooklyn.

3. ZOMBIES JERSEYS? YES, ZOMBIE JERSEYS
The Inland Empire 66ers, Single-A affiliate of the Los Angeles Angels, have a Zombie Apocalypse night scheduled for June 12 and they've made jerseys to match. These actually look like what a baseball team from "The Walking Dead" would wear, so bravo, 66ers. The bloodstains also look like Michael Pineda's neck, but that's another matter entirely.
