Darth Vader is a multi-talented guy. From choking subordinates with an invisible force to performing impromptu amputations on members of his family, he can perform all kinds of amazing feats. But did you know he’s also a major league slugger?

It’s true! As part of a collaboration between Lucasfilm and Japan pro-baseball’s Pacific League, Vader stepped up to the plate to show how the game should be played: with light-saber bats!

These commercials were actually promotions for a Star Wars Day held at an Eagles and Hawks game last year.

Looks like it wasn’t rebel fighters that destroyed the Death Star after all!
