When grownups bully over baseball

<strong>By Monica Rosales</strong>

For the past four years, we have been going trick or treating in the Fryer Creek area along all the homes across from Train Town, and we have always had a fun and friendly experience. Until this year.

Victoria, who is 10-years-old, decided to be a Dodgers baseball player, because she is a huge fan. So here we go, getting the kids all ready and they’re as excited as any kid would be for Halloween. Victoria is waiting anxiously with her mitt and ball and bag for candy while we all get out the car, the biggest smile on her face, not just because she was dressed up and was going to get treats, but because she was so proud of her costume.

So off we go, and there must have been 10 to 15 different houses where grown adults were handing out candy had negative comments about Victoria’s Dodger costume.

Comments like: “Oh come on, Dodgers?,” “Boo Dodgers,” “Oh, why a Dodgers costume?” At the same time, the other kids were getting comments like, “Awww, how cute, nice costume, yay a fairy, aww a little monkey.” But then to Victoria, “Oh come on.” It was sad.
