(Photo Gallery) HS Baseball Game Featured Players Wearing Halloween Costumes

Fantastic. Matt LaBelle, the head coach of Simi Valley (Calif.) High’s baseball team, had the unique idea last week to make it mandatory for players to show up in Halloween costumes for a Friday (Oct. 28) afternoon game. As you can plainly see from the photos, the players were more than happy to oblige and went all out in accommodating their coach’s request. Even the coaches got in on the Halloween hijinks, which makes the entire spectacle that much cooler.

And the players had some great ideas: Dumb and Dumber-inspired costumes with Harry and Lloyd in their fancy tuxes are my personal favorites, but a photo gallery featuring the costumed players in action follows:

Awesome stuff. Well done, guys.
