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
