This is the game you're looking for: It's "Star Wars" night at Coolray Field on Saturday.

The Gwinnett Stripers will give away a “Star Wars”-themed bobblehead of Atlanta Braves player Ozzie Albies. Albies played at Coolray Field for two months before being promoted to the Atlanta Braves; the Stripers were also known as the Braves until this season.


The bouncing toy version of the second-baseman wears a white shirt, black vest and belt similar to that of Han Solo, portrayed by Harrison Ford in the original three “Star Wars” movies. The first 2,500 fans in attendance Saturday, May 12 will get to take home a bobblehead.

While supplies of the bobbleheads are limited, everyone can enjoy a free fireworks show at the end of the game against the Norfolk Tides. The game begins at 6:05 p.m., and tickets are still available for as little as $8.
