It’s Halloween In July At Slugger Field!

Trick-or-Treats and Cheap Eats on July 24th with the Louisville Bats!

There’s no need to wait another three months to break out the Halloween costumes this year thanks to Louisville’s own Minor League Baseball team, the Louisville Bats, and the folks at Slugger Field. On Tuesday July 24th, Slugger Field will magically transform into a Halloween wonderland complete with trick-or-treat stations for kids to collect candy during the game.

Kids 12 and under who come in costume will receive a FREE field reserved seat when accompanied by an adult paid regular price admission ticket, but nobody said that the adults can’t dress up too!

Among the sponsors of the event, Pepsi and Meijer will be providing $1 Pepsi and $1 hot dogs to keep the throngs of little witches, monsters and super heroes happy. Handling the Halloween aspect of the event is Louisville’s oldest and best novelty and costume shop, Caufields! They’ll be awarding three prizes to the best costumes on the field during the game, so don’t just cut some eye holes out of an old, white sheet. Get into the Halloween spirit and get creative!

It makes perfect sense that Caufields would be the mad genius behind this hootenanny. After all, their amazing shop with its world famous Wall of Masks is only a block and a half down Main Street from the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory where you’ll find the largest baseball bat in the world. Not to be outdone, hanging from Caufields building with its glowing red eyes lighting up Main Street at night, you’ll find the world’s largest vampire bat!

It’s the Louisville Bats VS the Buffalo Bisons, which already sounds like a monster movie worthy of a Roger Corman produced Syfy Channel Saturday night premiere. How cool is it that our Minor League Baseball team’s mascot, Buddy Bat, is a giant purple Chiroptera? My old friend, Count Alucard, from London would be proud (London, KY, that is!).

If you need to rent or buy a costume for the game, just mention this event at Caufields and get an instant 10% off your purchase.

Who knows, you may even spot me, the Phantom of the Ville, haunting the hot dog stand or the spooking the Pepsi booth. If you feel a slight cold chill on the back of your neck in the July heatĀ of Slugger Field, chances are it will be me!
