Publisher Comments:

Baseball and ghost stories are as American as apple pie.& nbsp; Haunted Baseball combines both with this fun& nbsp; and& nbsp; freaky collection of otherworldly yarns. Collected from baseball players, stadium personnel, umpires, front-office folks, and fans, the tales told here explore the spooky connection between baseball and the paranormal, including Babe Ruth sightings at a former brothel, the Curse of the Billy Goat that still haunts the Chicago Cubs, the unexplained occurrences at the visiting-team hotel in Milwaukee, and the spirit of a beloved Cleveland Indians trainer reincarnated as a seagull.& nbsp; We learn of hidden passageways within the depths of Dodger Stadium, and of the spirits of legendary stars that inspire modern-day players at Yankee Stadium. We hear why Johnny Damon believes in ghosts, and how the memories of a 9/11 hero inspired Ken Griffey Jr. to hit a home run against the Phillies — a team against which he ' d never even gotten a hit & nbsp; There ' s the story of how Sam Rice settled a decades-old baseball controversy with a message from beyond the grave, and how the late Roberto Clemente had premonitions of his own death in a plane crash. With a wealth of anecdotes that have never before been told before, the authors present an entertaining and eerie look at& nbsp; our national pastime.& nbsp;

Synopsis:

Haunted Baseball is an anthology of “otherworldly” stories collected from baseball players, stadium personnel, umpires, front-office folks, and fans, exploring the sometimes amusing and sometimes spooky connection between baseball and the paranormal. Stories include the legendary “Curse of the Bambino”; the frightening story of the visiting-team hotel in Milwaukee, which many MLB stars claim is haunted; the poltergeist that is said to frequent the Anaheim Angels visitors' clubhouse; and the posthumous return of Tom Yawkey to Fenway Park. Whether you believe in the paranormal or not, this book will certainly intrigue even the most avid skeptic.
