The Arizona Diamondbacks are set to host the Chicago Cubs on Sunday and it is Star Wars Day at Chase Field. Why on July 20th is beyond me, but I know from my Big Bang Theory viewing that usually May 4th is Star Wars day because everone makes “may the fourth” jokes on the famous “may the force be with you line.”
Nevertheless fans everywhere showed up in their Star Wars gear for the promotion.

It wasn’t limited to just the fans though. The Diamondbacks’ broadcasters for Fox Sports, Steve Berthiaume and Bob Brenly, each got dressed as well as a Storm Trooper and Chewbacca.
Both pretty notable characters from the franchise, and props for not going the easy Jedi route. With that being said, Chewbacca and a Storm Trooper would never be hanging out. Either go as Darth Vader and a Storm Tropper or Han Solo and Chewbacca.
