MLB Costumes

Halloween will be here before you know it.  If you want to go as your favorite MLB player, we are here to help.

If  you’re like me, you like baseball and you like to drink.   Lucky for us, it’s October, the month of playoff baseball and Halloween.  I’ve never been one to spend money on costumes; so here are some great baseball costume ideas that won’t cost you much money, especially if you have clothes representing MLB.
