As part of the Stand Up to Cancer campaign, Star Wars author Jason Fry, a long time Mets fan, trooped with the 501st’s Empire City Garrison as they invaded Citi Field. Jason wrote up a nice article on the event that goes into the trial and tribulations of donning the armor. Whether it’s the difficulties of seeing anything through a stormtrooper helmet, or just the exhilaration of being on the field with his favorite baseball team, the article was a nice read and I recommend checking it out. You can read it here on the Faith and Fear of Flushing blog.

Jason Fry is the author of numerous Star Wars RPG books and guides such at Star Wars: The Essential Atlas and the upcoming Star Wars: Essential Guide to Warfare (which will be released on May 22, 2012). If you’d like to learn more about Jason Fry, you can check out his website or follow him on Twitter.
