Chewbacca mom can make you laugh. But how’s her pitching arm?
Rays fans can find out when viral video star Candace Payne throws out the first pitch at Saturday’s game against the Houston Astros. It's Star Wars night at the Trop, so she'll hardly be the only Chewie fan in the house.
Payne has been making appearances in Florida since a video she made of herself laughing hysterically over a Chewbacca mask went viral.
Last week, while Payne visited Southeastern University, the Polk County announced it was awarding her family full scholarships.
