Happy Star Wars Day!

Here’s an ad from 2013 for the Japan Pacific League that calls upon the Force that is the Star Wars universe.  Do you think it counts as cheating if Vader uses the Force when he’s at the plate?

May the Force be with us all, both on and off the field!


Throw first pitch, Vader did

When Kinect Star Wars for Xbox 360 was released this past April, Dodgers fans had the opportunity to see Darth Vader himself throw the first pitch as part of a promotional gag in Los Angeles.  It seems that the Force is not as strong with Vader as it once was, but I suppose one should expect that falling to the Dark Side would inevitably stunt one’s ability to play baseball.
