From the authors of the popular Haunted Baseball comes this all-new collection of spooky stories from ballplayers, stadium personnel, umpires, front-office staff, and fans, exploring the sometimes amusing and often eerie connection between baseball and the paranormal.

Featuring Major Leaguers Like:

Torii Hunter: “People say when you go in [Yankee Stadium] you just have this chill that you’re going to lose. Like the ghosts are whispering in your ear the whole time you’re walking to the clubhouse, to the dugout, on the field.”

Tim Lincecum: “I’m not answering that door!  If it’s a ghost or a real person, I’m not answering it!”

Roy Halladay: “I don’t know what it was, but I called the front desk to change rooms.”

Adrian Beltre: “It was haunted, man. I’m dead serious. I was real scared.”

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for authors' previous book, Haunted Baseball:
 

“Like a pair of ‘ghost busters,’ Gordon and Bradley have mined a rich underground of bizarre and often unexplainable tales to liven up our reading.” —Library Journal

 “…a must read for fans of baseball and ghosts.” —Chronogram Magazine

“…contains a wealth of anecdotes that have never been told…an entertaining and eerie look at our national pastime.” —Society for American Baseball Research

“Authors Mickey Bradley and Dan Gordon talked to seemingly every Yankee alive about all the ones who aren't, and how they hang around the stadium, lending ectoplasmic assistance.” —New York Sun

 “The book raises some interesting questions. Just don’t read it in an old hotel room.” —Tampa Tribune

“… a catalog of haunted clubhouses and ghostly outfields … keep[s] baseball’s legacy of weirdness alive.” —Rocky Mountain News

“… has the supernatural bases covered.”—Boston Herald

“The stories are so diverse and so spread out over time you realize that you are not dealing with crop circles or the furry trout—these are not hoaxes or urban legends, but stories with actual substance to them…. Whether you believe in ghosts or not, you will walk away from the book with a new appreciation of baseball history.”—The Sports Review
