Ghosts Newsbeat

Friday, September 07, 2018

Superstition is the way for MLB players, and that includes haunted hotels

Only 80%?

Hawes thinks more than 80 percent of claims of ghostly activity can be disproven. (That percentage might be higher among ballplayers: Bradley’s second book included a chapter on ghost-related pranks.) Still, he warns that players could be at greater risk for ghost-related mishap because they’re a large group who are frequently charged up with emotions from the night’s game. The player’s mood can work against their minds, leading them to believe every little noise or breeze is a ghost’s doing, and/or can work toward energizing the spirits, allowing them to manifest or commit their brand of hijinks and tomfoolery.
