According to StarTribune.com, Minnesota Twins pitcher Alex Burnett carries a bullpen backpack that looks like Chewbacca...
"MILWAUKEE - When Twins rookie Alex Burnett heads to the bullpen each game, it looks like he has a monkey on his back. Literally -- there's always a brown, shaggy object hanging from his shoulders.
That's actually a backpack made to resemble Star Wars wookiee Chewbacca. The Twins have a tradition of making their least-tenured reliever carry the bullpen backpack, which is filled with seeds and gum for all the relievers.
Burnett has more major league service time than the Twins' most recent bullpen addition, Jeff Manship. So technically, it should be Manship's duty to carry Chewbacca, but Burnett won't have it.
"I've been doing well, so I want to keep carrying it," Burnett said."
