It's hardly possible to come up with a baseball costume that hasn't been thought of before. Fans have donned uniforms, put on wigs, painted their faces, plastered themselves with team logos, dressed as team mascots and turned themselves into giant baseballs. However, there are plenty of baseball costume ideas that may cause the broadcast announcer to sigh, "Now there's something you don't see every day."
A costume with a baseball theme can be approached in many ways. You can buy a white baseball cap that's made to look like an actual baseball. You can wear a rounded helmet and paint your face white or buy a rubber mask in the shape of a baseball. You can buy or make a costume that looks like a big baseball. Alternatively, take dozens of baseballs and use them to cover white or green sweats.
There are plenty of baseball uniform costumes that you can buy off the rack at a party store. You can dress your baby or even your long-suffering dog in the uniform of your favorite player. If you want to go retro, you can go the game as Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig or one of the infamous participants in the "Black Sox Scandal" of the 1919 World Series. If you're honoring a current baseball hero wear his jersey and number; wear a wig with the team colors or honor your hero's nickname by incorporating it into the costume. For example, if your hero's nickname is "the shark," wear a shark head with his number jersey.
If you hate your team's mascot and think you can do better, you can buy a generic baseball mascot costume, complete with uniform and baseball head. Alternatively, you can be a big chicken, a dog or a kid. If you wear this to a game, it's possible that you might even fool some people.
Most fans go freestyle with costumes worn to a game. They use face paint, wigs, crazy hats, boas and anything else they can think of to cobble their costumes together -- and the more elaborate, the better. Create a model of the stadium out of building blocks and wear it on top of your head. Paint a temporary tattoo of your favorite player on your arm, head or the palms of your hands. Wear giant sunglasses, a helmet with horns or a mustache.
