501st Legion | MidSouth Garrison

Mission Report: May 29th was Star Wars Night as the Memphis Redbirds hosted the Albuquerque Isotopes.  It was a little rainy, but that did not damper the spirits of the fans.  The Midsouth Garrison was there to support the Memphis Redbirds, and to take pictures with the fans.  Darth Vader even threw out the first pitch!  During the game we threw out t-shirts, gave out ice cream and even sang Happy Birthday to one lucky fan.  We spent some time with a little girl that had cancer, and Darth Vader received some hand-delivered fan mail.  It was an awesome event!
