Yoda’s wisdom isn’t just for Jedi. The San Diego Padres seem to have adopted a new green mascot, which can’t hurt gaming odds.

Recently, Yoda was spotted with the Padres as they played against the Florida Marlins. Of course, Yoda does have another connection to the Padres. Actress Ashley Eckstein, who voices Jedi Ahsoka Tano in The Clone Wars animated series and created a new fashion line for female Star Wars fans called Her Universe, is married to Padres’ infielder David Eckstein.
