The Cubs are traveling to Cleveland in their very best Halloween costumes
All season long, the Cubs have turned each road trip into a fashion show -- with a different theme for every departure, from the infamous Minimalist Zany Suit experiment to the bright lights and pastels of Miami Vice. On Monday, the team prepared to make its final and most important road trip of the season, flying to Cleveland for World Series Game 6 on Tuesday night (7:30 p.m. ET air time on FOX I 8 p.m. game time). Oh, and it just so happened to be Halloween. You can probably see where this is going.
We'll let Addison Russell start us off, while politely noting that Leonardo was absolutely the best Ninja Turtle.
And then there's reliever Carl Edwards Jr., coming through with a very strong Mr. Incredible outfit:

And skipper Joe Maddon, dressed as ... well, we're not really sure what he's dressed as:

Even the fans that came to see the team off got to bask in the spirit of the holiday:

Alas, young Grandpa Rossy could not make the trip.
