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
