In addition, the Somerset Patriots Players will be wearing very special Stormtrooper-themed jerseys, which will be silent auctioned throughout the game, for fans to bid on and win to help raise money for the Charcot-Marie-Tooth Association (CMTA).

Fans wearing Star Wars costumes or apparel will receive a $2 ticket discount for that night’s game, and enjoy Star Wars music, video clips and more in advance of the release of Star Wars Episode VII later in the year.

The fun begins at 6:45 p.m. with a special presentation on the field.

Fans will be able to take pictures during the game with their favorite Star Wars characters on the main concourse.
