Field of Screams

Haunted Tales From The Baseball Diamond, The Locker Room, And Beyond

Book Description

Baseball and ghost stories are as American as apple pie.

Enjoy both in this unique collection of otherworldly yarns.

 

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. The haunting of Yankee Stadium, the ghost of Babe Ruth, and inexplicable encounters at the Hall of Fame are among the many tales herein. While spotlighting numerous major leage teams, Field of Screams also includes minor league ballparks, hotels, and baseball memorabilia, and concludes with a look at major league pranks that players indulge in to spook one another.

Tim Lincecum: "I'm not answering that door! If it's a ghost or a real person, I'm not answering it!"
