Houston Astros players, figures as Star Wars characters

On this annual Star Wars Day, I figured there’s no better way to celebrate my favorite film franchise than by combining it with my favorite team in my favorite sport. So I came up with a list of Star Wars characters and figured out which Houston Astros player would be that character.

Now in order to keep this from getting too long and complicated, I only used characters from the original Star Wars trilogy — with one exception. It also means, fortunately, there are no references to that godforsaken sequel trilogy. I’ll just go on pretending that it never happened.
