While always entertaining, MLB clubhouse celebrations typically feature the garden-variety soaking of players and reporters with beer or champagne.
Which is what made the Washington Nationals' post-Wild Card victory scene so damn satisfying.
In addition to the usual booze-addled fun, reliever Sean Doolittle introduced a prop into the mix.
Can we talk about how awesome it is the Nats (@whatwouldDOOdo I believe) have a lightsaber in the clubhouse? 📷: @bmcnally14 pic.twitter.com/o50Z0J72P6— Neil Greenberg (@ngreenberg) October 2, 2019
We can, and we shall.
More clubhouses should incorporate cosplay into celebratory routines.
Of course, this was a very specific cosplay, courtesy of the Nats' resident Star Wars enthusiast.
Just look how much fun dude's having:

And he's far from a novice with the futuristic weaponry:

But was it strong enough to make this happen to the Brewers?
Or did they use something else?
Also, we don't know how Doolittle and his teammates feel about the many casualties aboard the uncompleted Death Star.
So many questions.
