Star Wars Saturday With The Bowie Baysox

Posted By Mike on June 22, 2012

Star Wars is once again set to descend upon Prince George's Stadium in Maryland when the Bowie Baysox take on the Reading Phillies on Saturday, June 23rd. Members of the 501st and Rebel Legion will be on hand, fan costumes are welcome, R2-D2 will be making an appearance, lightsaber battles may break out at any time (though most likely between innings), and fireworks will cap off the evening. My son and I attended last year and had an absolute blast. We'll certainly be there again and will be sure to provide another report of the festivities. Until then, here's the official press release...


The Force is Strong in Bowie
Baysox Host Star Wars Night June 23

BOWIE, Md. - The Bowie Baysox will be in the center of an intergalactic conflict when the team hosts Star Wars Night at Prince George's Stadium Saturday, June 23, as the Baysox take on the Reading Phillies at 6:35 p.m. The event features characters in movie-quality replica costumes, lightsaber battles, droids, pre and postgame performances, and a fireworks extravaganza after the Jedi Knights and Sith Lords have a final showdown.

The Baysox have long supported the rebel alliance, hosting Jedi Knights, rebel pilots and other members of the Terrapin Base of the Rebel Legion. The conflict begins when Darth Vader, storm troopers and other members of the Old Line Garrison and Garrison Tyranus of the 501st Legion invade the ballpark to quell the resistance. The battle will be decided on the field as Jedi Knights and Sith Lords from the Defenders of the Force hold lightsaber battles between innings and before the fireworks.

Despite the conflict, fans are encouraged to attend the game to see a special pregame performance by the DDP Drill Team featuring lightsabers. Fans can also meet members of the R2-D2 Builders Club, and learn how to build their own droids.

Promotions Manager Chris Rogers is excited for the event. “Star Wars Saturday is one of my favorite events of the year because of all the great groups that come out in movie-quality costumes,” Rogers said. “As you walk around the concourse it’s so easy to picture yourself on Tatooine, Naboo, or Dagobah because you are standing next to a Jedi Knight, Stormtrooper, Jawa, or any number of authentic Star Wars characters. Everyone, especially those who are Star Wars fans or who have never experienced this event before, is in for a real treat.”

Since its release on May 25, 1977, "Star Wars" has been an integral part of American pop culture, spanning six films, an animated series, several video games and numerous works of fiction.

Baysox Baseball - We'll Knock Your 'Sox Off. The Baysox 20th season is underway. Parking is free at every Baysox home game and tickets are now available at www.baysox.com, or by calling the Baysox box office at (301) 464-4865.
