The Arizona Diamondbacks (@Dbacks) will host Star Wars Day on July 18 when the team hosts the San Francisco Giants at 5:10 p.m. at Chase Field. The first 20,000 D-backs fans will receive a Star Wars-themed A.J. Pollock Bobblehead, courtesy of Cox Communications, in which fans will be able to interchange the bat with a lightsaber.
Fans are encouraged to dress in their favorite Star Wars character to participate in a special pregame parade around the field. Star Wars characters, such as Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Darth Vader and Stormtroopers, will be on hand to greet fans and will participate in several in-game activities.
Last year's Star Wars Night featured a Josh Collmenter Star Wars-themed bobblehead and D-backs announcers Steve Berthiaume and Bob Brenly appeared as Chewbacca and a Stormtrooper, respectively, during the broadcast on FOX Sports Arizona.
