Japanese baseball player Ryosuke Kikuchi is letting his geek flag fly.

At a game at the Dodger Stadium this week, he chose the theme from Legend of Zelda as his walk-on music. You can catch some of it in this clip, featuring the Zelda music on the stadium’s organ.

It’s the perfect blend of sports fandom and vintage video game love.
