Major League Baseball has a long standing tradition of honoring some of the larger moments in pop culture history. The respect and appreciation for Star Wars is just one among them, which makes the league’s widespread recognition of Star Wars Day – celebrated each year on May 4th by geeks and fans of the epic movie franchise alike – all the more special.
With that in mind, the folks at the MLB Fan Cave put together their own video to mark the occasion, complete with light sabers for bats and accurate sound effects to boot. It could easily be longer, but it’s still pretty cool in it’s own right.
Have a look for yourself.
