The St. Louis cardinals have taken the phrase 'fun at the old ballpark' to a whole new galaxy -- a galaxy far, far away to be exact. Busch Stadium was transformed with Star Wars-themed sights and sounds on Wednesday night when the Cardinals battled the Dodgers. Jeff RobersonAssociated Press Fans were able to buy a special Star Wars Theme ticket and with the purchase received their very own Star Wars Cardinals t-shirt along with the satisfaction of knowing a portion of each ticket sold went to benefit Stand Up to Cancer. Star Wars characters are stationed at each gate for photos.

But it wasn't just the fans who were able to enjoy the fun, as members of the FOX Sports Midwest production team put together some rather interesting interpretations of current Cardinals players fused with Star Wars characters. Adam Wainwright Mace Windu = Ace Waindu Bib Fortuna Ricky Horton = Bib Hortuna Boba Fett Matt Carpenter = Boba Matt C-3PO Carlos Beltran = C3B-Tran Chewbacca Al Hrabosky = Hchewbosky Darth Vader Don Denkinger = Darth Denkinger Jar Jar Binks Joe Kelly = Jar Jar Binks Han Solo Jon Jay = Jon Solo Luke Skywalker Michael Wacha = Luke Skywacha Qui-Gon Jinn Lance Lynn = Qui-Gon Lynn Obi-Wan Kenobi Shelby Miller = Shelby-Wan Kenobi Princess Leia Kayla = Princess KaleiaPadmeQueen Amidala Teryn = Teryme Amidala Yoda Yadier Molina = Yodi Unfortunately, light saber wavers and wookie mask wearers did nothing for the Cardinals on the field. Nope, not one bit. Starting pitcher Shelby Miller was knocked from the game just two pitches in after a line drive off the bat of the Dodgers' Carl Crawford struck him on his pitching elbow. That unfortunate situation resulted in the Cardinals using their next-day starter, Jake Westbrook, and St. Louis was eventually defeated 13-4. It was clear the force was not with the Cardinals on this particular night. But at least their fans had a good time, which is a positive considering the time of game was a cool 3 hours and 47 minutes. A long one it was.
