MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – In a night filled with ghosts, goblins and ghouls, members of the Georgia College baseball, softball and cross country teams entertained the Milledgeville youth Sunday night with Halloween on the Hill at John Kurtz Field. 

The youngsters showed up to take part in various games, face painting and activities, all while getting a chance to meet some of their favorite Bobcat student-athletes. 

Following that, everyone headed over to the diamond to check out a three inning costume baseball game with members of the GC baseball team. 

The Ghosts and the Ghouls put on a heck of a show, sending the game into extra innings before the Ghosts prevailed. 

The children, dressed in their Halloween attire, then had the opportunity to come down on the field, judge the costume contest and run the bases. 

For the second consecutive year, Halloween on the Hill proved to be a huge success within the community, bringing its fair share of children and smiles to John Kurtz Field.
