LU baseball’s Spooky Slugfest

Published 7:36 am Thursday, October 27, 2016

The Longwood University baseball team will be donning some unusual uniforms for an intrasquad game Friday at 5 p.m. that is open to the public at Buddy Bolding Stadium and will be followed by an on-field trick-or-treat around the bases for children.

The Lancers, which will split into two teams, the Ghouls and the Goblins, will be wearing creative Halloween costumes during the coach-pitch game which should last approximately an hour and 15 minutes.

Longwood Head Baseball Coach Ryan Mau said the first-time event is designed to involve the community in the off-season and give his players a chance to let loose and have fun on the field in a way they do not ordinarily have the opportunity to do.
