Baseball Themed Halloween – great ideas for a home run holiday


If your kids are like mine, they incorporate baseball into everything they do. My 10-year-old brings his infielder’s glove grocery shopping, in case the produce guy wants to play catch. My 14-year-old wears his elastic uniform belt with khakis to church. (That’s quite a look!) Given that baseball dominates everything in our world, it only makes sense that our Halloween costumes and decor will comply with this theme.

I’ve been scouring Pinterest in search of creative ways to combine baseball with trick-or-treating. I’ve also gotten some super cute photos from you guys showing me your favorite costumes. (GO GIANTS!!!) So, if you’re reading this thinking “Oh Crap! Halloween’s two weeks away and I still don’t have a pumpkin on the front porch, much less costumes for the kiddos” rest easy and take note of these creative and simple baseball-themed Halloween ideas.

A poster board, markers, uniform and bat and BAM! You’re a baseball card coming to life. (Feel free to choose someone other than Ned Yost. Not that there’s anything wrong with Ned Yost. Wait, who is Ned Yost?)
Giants fans Halloween
For cheap costumes in a hurry, grab some face paint and fan gear from your favorite MLB team…even if they stunk up the regular season pretty bad this year. (Thanks to Janece Shellooe for the great photo.)
Or you could grab a friend and reenact a famous brawl like this one between Jose Bautista and Rougned Odor. (pic found on Pinterest.)
kid trophy
Got gold spray paint and a solid rectangle something to use as a base? Be a trophy for Halloween. Perhaps the base could double as a candy container.
Myles Montoya
Wear your favorite team’s uniform. Last year, Yankee slugger, Myles Montoya celebrated Halloween with two Rockford Peaches cuties. Thanks to his mom, Brooke, for the photo.
