The souvenir features third baseman Rafael Devers with a glow-in-the-dark Lightsaber bat. An amusing video posted by the MLB shows various footage of the team using lightsabers for bats and getting hit with blasters as they make their way around the bases.

Included in the event, fans were treated to special Star Wars-themed photo ops, along with appearances from cosplayers and various fan groups. Those who arrived early received a free Lightsaber inflatable.

TikTok creator @FoxHound1984 shared a couple of videos from the soirĂ©e, which looked like a blast…no pun intended! Some of the epic costumes included the Mandalorian and Grogu, Kylo Ren, Princess PadmĂ© Amidala, Han Solo, and more.

Darth Vader and a fully costumed Chewbacca were also spotted roaming around the stadium. Cosplayers traveled through tunnels as they made their way to photo ops and mingled with fellow fans.

The cosplayers made for quite a sight in the stands, and their presence delighted audience members. Star Wars fans have been looking forward to Disney Plus Day, which arrives on September 8.
