Looking back at the best Halloween costumes from MLB players in years past
Halloween is a great holiday because it offers people of all ages an excuse to eat candy all day. For one day each year, there's no judgment for those who drop the veneer of healthy eating to indulge in all manner of party-sized sweets.
But we all know the one rule of Halloween: You don't get candy unless you have a costume. Let's take a look at some of the best Halloween costumes from years past. These players have celebrated with their very best costumes, so they were allowed to have as much candy as their hearts desired. That's how it works, right?

Harvey's nickname is The Dark Knight, so dressing as Batman would have been predictable. Harvey is not predictable, so he went with this instead:
The Pharaohs of ancient Egypt were pretty powerful. Just like Stanton ... and whatever's powering those shoes!
No, not the Renaissance artist. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.
They go together.
Perfect execution from the costumes to the black-and-white photograph.
