Little ghouls and goblins — plus their mummies and daddies — are invited to attend TJC’s 9th annual “Halloween at Home Plate” baseball game Sunday, Oct. 29, at Mike Carter Field, next to Rose Stadium.
Admission is free, and the public is invited to attend. Costumes are encouraged but not required.
Sponsored by TJC’s Student Life department and Apache Baseball team, the event will begin at 4:30 p.m. with a Trunk or Treat, with TJC departments and organizations hosting booths with free food, fun activities and candy for the kids.
At 6 p.m., the Apache Baseball team will take the field for their costume game.
“This began as a just a fun, inter-squad game among the Apache Baseball team,” said Doug Wren, TJC head baseball coach. “A few years ago, we teamed up with our friends in the TJC Student Life office and it’s grown into a really fun, family event.”
At 6 p.m. Sunday, the Apache Baseball team will take the field for their inter-squad costume game.
Following the game, the kids will be invited on the field to run the bases and take photos with the baseball team.
“We look forward to this game every year,” said Lauren Tyler, TJC director of student life.
“It’s a fun and safe way for kids to celebrate Halloween, and it’s so much fun to watch them get excited about seeing some of their favorite characters on the field. In past years, we’ve seen Scooby Doo and Shaggy, ninjas, cowboys and all sorts of superheroes. Every year, there’s a new batch of characters.”
