Monster Mash

Monster Mash

Baseball hosts treat for kids

On Tuesday, the baseball teams hosted a Halloween-themed festival for the community to join. Parents and children participated in a bake sale, trick-or-treating, as well as watching and interacting with the baseball players. 

“The goal for the Monster mash was to raise money for the baseball program,” head baseball coach Rich Sanguinetti said.”  “More importantly, [we hoped to] create an event where our players [could have] a lot of fun and an event that the community could really enjoy.”

The players participated in a baseball game wearing their Halloween costumes, providing an entertainment factor for the crowd and the players themselves. The coaches dressed in costumes as well while passing out candy to trick-or-treaters.

“I think the Monster Mash was an awesome opportunity for team bonding amongst the players,” senior Kameron Wheeler said. “There was definitely an aspect of friendly competition to welcome the season, but also an opportunity for the community to get involved and have fun.”

Fundraisers such as a bake sale and t-shirt sale were set up at the event. Kids in costumes also got to run the bases before the baseball game.

“We had a great turnout,” Sanguinetti said. “We had over 50 little kids in costumes and sold over 100 total adult tickets. I feel as though the community had a lot of fun and we look forward to having another great turnout next year.”
