Posted July 25th, 2014 @ 3:47pm

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- The Louisville Bats are hoping to "use The Force" this weekend.

The team is hosting its first ever "Star Wars Night" for their Sunday evening game against Charlotte. There will be over 20 Star Wars characters roaming the stadium and the team will be in special jerseys that had to be approved by George Lucas. Those jerseys will be auctioned off following the game with the proceeds going to Kosair Children’s Hospital.

The Bats' Greg Galiette says the players are excited and he believes some may place a bid on their own jerseys.

First pitch is set for 6:05 p.m. Sunday evening.
