Giants confirm star players leave team hotel due to fear of ghosts after having “some experience” there last year.
Juxtapose the words “baseball” and “ghosts” and most people will probably think of Kevin Costner building a diamond in his corn field and the spectral versions of Moonlight Graham and other ballplayers of yore playing supernatural doubleheaders.
Turns out baseball-related voices and hauntings aren't just the stuff of the movies. San Francisco Giants starters Pablo Sandoval and Edgar Renteria have reportedly checked out of the Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee and checked in down the street after purportedly being spooked by ghosts. The pair join a bevy of Major Leaguers who claim they've seen or heard paranormal activities at the hotel — one Los Angeles Dodger even slept with his bat after having the bejeezus scared out of him.
We are not making this up.
