What do you get when you cross a comic convention with a major league baseball game?
Star Wars Night at Fenway Park. The collision of two epic fandoms: Star Wars and the Red Sox. What could go wrong? Nothing, that’s what.
The 501st Legion represented the Star Wars in full Force (see what I did there?) taking pictures with kids and adults alike. Meanwhile, the ballpark started the game by having a band play the Star Wars theme and by showing a video on the screen of the ball players battling with lightsabers.
In addition, fans who purchased their tickets through the special Star Wars promotion scored a pretty nifty BB-8 commemorative limited edition ball statue.
First, there was a Tiny Rey.
Then there were stormtroopers galore.
Then there was a Padme and Cody.
Then there was a Big Rey.
Then there were some pretty stinking amazeballs balloon hats and Leias.
And if that wasn’t enough? There was Big Papi batting with a light saber. Because, I mean, OF COURSE.
Well played, Fenway. Hopefully, we’ll be back again next year.
