LOOK: 2015 baseball player Halloween costume mega-bonanza – CBSSports.com


October 31, 2015 5:16 PM ET

Leading all Saturday baseball events is of course Game 4 of the 2015 World Series between the Royals and Mets. Providing backdrop — along with the recommended daily allowance of Paganism — is Halloween. Given the occasion and given that baseball is the sport that binds us, let’s enjoy a brief walking tour of some ballplayer and ballplayer-inspired Halloween costumes. Come with us, won’t you?

First up, a young man paying homage to Colby Rasmus of the Astros and his triumphant sense of leisure …

Excelsior! And now a brief glimpse of the inspiration …

(USATSI)

Hey, Halloween’s a fine time to revisit that dubious strike zone from the top of the ninth in ALCS Game 6 …

Forthcoming: Wine, also cheese, co-starring Hunter Pence

Mr. Pence, he’s not done …

Pirates prospect Tyler Eppler …

Cody Decker

Keith Hernandez …

The younger sister of Indians prospect Clint Frazier

Egad …

Huston Street and kiddos …

Costumes themselves in costumes …

The college ranks …

Home run, while costumed …

Dinosaur, mid-stride …

Finally, let us doff our caps to the World Series with Mr. Met in pumpkin form …

Wait, one more, in the interest of equal time for the AL side …

Happy Halloween, people on the Internet.
