The Yankees are known as "The Evil Empire."

So it was only fitting that they hazed their rookies by making them wear Star Wars costumes leaving for a road trip after Sunday’s 5-4 loss to the A’s.

The roster (from left):

Mark Littlefield (training staff): Chewbacca

Adam Warren: Han Solo

David Phelps: Princess Leia

Joe Girardi

Melky Mesa: Darth Vader

Cody Eppley: Luke Skywalker

Kenji Nimura (Hiroki Kuroda’s translator): Yoda
