The site features the soon-to-be-published “Haunted Baseball: Ghosts, Curses, Legends and Eerie Events.”
Providence, RHODE ISLAND: Authors Dan Gordon and Mickey Bradley launched a Web site, www.hauntedbaseball.com, for Haunted Baseball: Ghosts, Curses, Legends, and Eerie Events, a collection of “otherworldly” stories gathered from players, stadium personnel, front-office folks, umpires, and fans. The soon-to-be-published compendium will explore the sometimes amusing, sometimes spooky connection between baseball and the paranormal.
From haunted hotels to clubhouse poltergeists to Hall-of-Famers who don’t know the game is over, Haunted Baseball is chock full of fun, quirky stories that will please skeptics and believers alike.
The site includes information on the book and a book excerpt on ghost sightings by ballplayers and coaches at the Renaissance Vinoy Resort, the hotel for visiting teams
