ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) – The St. Louis Cardinals hosted “Star Wars Night” at the Busch stadium on Wednesday. The ballpark featured themed sights and sounds and fans got a unique Cardinals collector Star Wars t-shirt. Many fans came dressed as their favorite characters from the movie series.

The “force” wasn’t strong enough for the ball club. The Cards fell to the Dodgers 13-4.

Star Wars fans were not deterred by the blow-out. Many took to Instagram to share photos of their experience. See them here:
