On Saturday, June 7th members of the 501st New England Garrison and the Rebel Legion – Alderaan Base participated in the 5th annual Star Wars game held at McCoy Stadium in Pawtucket, RI. Troopers made the rounds and visited fans before the game, then took to the field where Emperor Palpatine threw out the ceremonial first pitch! Afterwards the troopers occupied two different photo booths along the 1st and 3rd base sides and posed for more pictures. While greeting fans at these photo booths staff members from the Paw Sox were asking for donations to help support their charitable organization. When all was said and done the photo booths, along with a contribution by the Paw Sox from their 50/50 raffle, we raised a total of $2,122 for the Pawtucket Red Sox Charitable Organization, which donates money to dozens of local charities and programs in the area. Then we capped off the night with a Paw Sox victory and an impressive fireworks show.
