Scout Night Sleepover also being held May 4

The Fort Myers Miracle are turning Hammond Stadium into the Millennium Falcon for a night, inviting Luke Skywalker, Chewbacca, Hans Solo, R2-D2 and the rest of the crew for an evening at the ballpark.

Star Wars Night at Hammond Stadium is among the most popular events held by the Miracle each season, attracting droves of Star Wars fans – many dressed in costume – to the ballgame. Popular Star Wars characters will be on hand for photo ops and fans can enter costume contests to win fabulous prizes.

This year, Star Wars Night will be held on Friday, May 4, which has become a holiday of sorts for Star Wars fanatics around the world.

“There really isn’t another event in town that rivals the Miracle’s Star Wars Night,” said Chris Peters, Miracle president and general manager. “With Star Wars Night falling on a Friday this season, we’re adding more meet-and-greets and fun surprises to entertain fans. May the Fourth be with you!”

First pitch for Star Wars Night is 7 p.m. vs. the Jupiter Hammerheads. Tickets start at $8.50 and include a postgame fireworks show presented by Dairy Queen (weather permitting). Wicked Dolphin and B103.9 are sponsoring a pregame Happy Hour.

Friday also is the annual Scout Night Sleepover for scouts and their families. Tickets are $19 and include a general admission ticket, patch and vouchers for a hot dog and drink, as well as postgame fireworks, snacks and a movie.
