BALTIMORE, Dec. 8 (UPI) -- Steve Smith got more than happiness and satisfaction after treating 60 children to holiday shopping sprees Monday at a Target in Baltimore.
He also got a Yoda costume.
And he wore the costume Wednesday to a team press conference. Smith, 37, has been nominated for the NFL's Walter Payton Man of the Year Award for the second consecutive season.
"At the holiday helper event, they had it," Smith told reporters Wednesday. "It's been a few decades since I wore a onesie. I tried it on. I bought it. So I got to use it. It was raining yesterday, kind of gloom and doom. I try not to waste money."
Smith hosted the Ravens' 12th Annual Holiday Helpers event, comprised of Ravens veteran players and cheerleaders helping Baltimore area children shop for Christmas presents. Each child was given a $200 Target gift card, a gift bag, Holiday Helpers T-shirt, and gifts from the Ravens and Target. Papa John's donated the food for the pre-shopping pizza party.
Smith has 589 yards and three touchdowns on 54 receptions this season. The two-time first-team All-Pro and five-time Pro Bowl selection announced last year that 2015 would be his last season, but decided to come back after a brutal Achilles injury ended his season early.
