The Minnesota Twins baseball team has recreated the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer to promote Star Wars Night at Target Field. The parody stars the one and only Phil Hughes, who apparently is a Jedi when he's not swinging bats.

I thought the coolest part was when the BB-8 droid was portrayed as a baseball. I just wished they included a crossguard baseball bat in this version. It's cool that they went all-out in promoting this event with this video even though the special effects were crappy. 

The Twins will also give away Phil Hughes "The Force" bobbleheads at Star Wars Night, which will be on May 4. 

We've seen Star Wars and baseball come together a bunch of times before, like this meme:
