    Taft College baseball will celebrate Halloween a day early on Thursday with its second Halloween game, starting at 3 p.m. It's an intrasquad game with the Cougar players dressed in costumes.

    Coach Vince Maiocco said he hopes this becomes an annual event. The first one was held last year. "It was a hoot," Maiocco said.

    Maiocco went over the list of costumes his players have submitted: Batman, Thor, Superman, an LDS missionary, a hula dancer, even two players dressed in drag.
