Photos: Fans and Fastballs Mingle on Star Wars Night at Coors Field

The force was with Colorado Rockies fans and Star Wars geeks alike on Star Wars Night at Coors Field, which included a costume parade, wandering characters and, down on the field, nine innings of baseball action as the Rockies battled the Mets. Sadly, the Empire State got the better of the Rox. Photographer Aaron Thackeray was there to capture the fun.

Now see the full Star Wars Night at Coors Field slideshow.
