The Force is with you, Cardinals.
The Force was with the St. Louis Cardinals Wednesday night.

The Redbirds beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-2, but the real excitement was in the stands, where fans of George Lucas' famous sci-fi franchise celebrated the second annual Star Wars night at Busch Stadium.

Chewbacca threw the ceremonial first pitch to Tyler Lyons before the game, and ticket holders took home a limited-edition shirt featuring R2-D2.

Here are our favorite costumes and moments from Star Wars night:

This is one of the best Jawa costumes we've ever seen.
Adorable family, look behind you!

Man, I missed ALL of these people last night. The only cosplayer I saw who didn't appear to be actually affiliated with the Cardinals was a college friend in a Jedi robe. (But I did get a sweet Boba Fett selfie.)
