Once again in 2022, the Force will be strong with the Colorado Rockies. Well, at least that’s guaranteed for one July evening against the Pittsburgh Pirates at Coors Field.
Here are the details for the 2022 edition of Star Wars Night at Coors Field between the Colorado Rockies and Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday, July 16.
In the midst of another day of the lockout that has put a halt to the vast majority of activity within the Major League Baseball offseason, the Colorado Rockies gave their fans a new hope (Star Wars enthusiasts will get that one) by announcing the availability of tickets for the annual Star Wars Night at 20th and Blake.

Buying a ticket with Colorado’s ticket package gets the purchaser a seat in a special Star Wars section (likely a little more civilized than the Mos Eisley Cantina, and with better views as well) plus a special Rockies Star Wars-themed shirt.
Tickets in the package range from $30 to $75.
The 2022 version of Star Wars Night will be part of a seven-game homestand that features the San Diego Padres coming into Denver for four games before a three-game weekend series against the Pirates wraps up the pre-All-Star portion of the schedule. Colorado and Pittsburgh will also meet for three games in Pittsburgh in late May as part of a road trip that takes the Rockies into the Steel City as well as Washington, D.C.
Past Star Wars Night have been popular with fans, as well as with All-Star outfielder Charlie Blackmon, who was transformed into a X-wing pilot bobblehead for the giveaway on Star Wars Night in 2016.
However, if you’re coming to the game, Rockies.com had a gentle reminder for you about Star Wars Night: “Please leave all laser pointers and replica weapons at home!”
And, in case you’re wondering Star Wars fans, the Rockies will be home against Washington on May 4 (if you know, you know).
