Players have just begun arriving at Washington Nationals' spring training facilities, but they are all already excited about the team's July 19 "Star Wars Day" promotion.
The Washington Post reports that the team's players were pretty excited to get their hands on the prop lightsabers the team had brought in to shoot promos for the event.
The team's communications manager even brought the Jedi weapon in to the press box to keep the media in line.
Please let someone take batting practice with a light saber.
