Ben Revere: Cheerleader
“I lost a bet … and dressed up as a cheerleader, a female cheerleader. Worst thing. I wouldn’t say that’s my best but it’s probably my funniest. We went to one of those Halloween costume stores, got a little tank top, a little skirt and the pom-poms. He tried to get me to wear a bow but I was like, ‘no go.’"

Justin Morneau: Scarecrow
"Halloween’s my favorite. Favorite time of the year other than Christmas. The most memorable one I’ve had is when I played in the Arizona Fall League. Rob Bowen and I were teammates and we dressed up as scarecrows and we sat outside the entrance of the clubhouse, put masks on and we had a little sign that said “Happy Halloween from the Arizona Fall League.” And then as people were walking in to the clubhouse, we’d jump up and scare them. It was hilarious. It was the old trick that you do where you put the candy bowl in the scarecrow’s lap and then when the kids go to get the candy, you jump up and scare the kids but we actually did it to grown men. We actually had a couple of guys try to punch us because they were so scared.”

Joe Mauer: Football Player
“Well recently I haven’t been very good. When I was younger, the easy one and the one I’d always use was a football player. I played football that fall and still had my uniform so that was probably the safest play for me. I haven’t been very creative the last couple of years, I need to get on that.”

Darin Mastroianni: Scooby Doo
“When I was a kid, I dressed up as Scooby Doo one time. Actually, I wasn’t as much of a kid as you’d hope I’d be. But yeah, that was my favorite one growing up – Scooby Doo, I loved it.”

Jamey Carroll: Phil Dunphy from Modern Family
“I’m going to go ahead and say, last year, I was Phil Dunphy from Modern Family. If you’re a Modern Family fan, you’ll understand but he’s a power walker for his exercise so I went and got some power walking gear with the walking sticks, the headband and short shorts with the half-way up the knee white socks and sleeveless shirt. I tried to pull that off.”
