Major Leaguers Pfear the Pfister: Major League Baseball players who stay at the 130-year-old Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee during road trips claim the place is haunted. Adrian Beltre heard phantom knocking in the hallway and the TV kept turning itself on. Carlos Gomez heard voices in the shower and his iPod erupted with static noise. Bryce Harper said his clothes moved. Instead of staying there this week for a three-game road series, Mookie Betts of the Los Angeles Dodgers is renting an Airbnb. "You can tell me what happened after," he said. "I just don't want to find out myself."

There have definitely been some umpires who have stayed there.

Don't the Yankees stay at a Ramada in Milwaukee?

Speaking as one with some experience in the fine art of umpiring, I can say with certainty that umpires need no paranormal stimulus to cause much on-the-field weirdness Causing chaos comes naturally to us.

What a great clip and I just realized that tommy's post is a time capsule from when the Brewers were still in the American League.

Well, I assume it is, maybe not, because it seems like the Brewers switched leagues around the same time that interleague play began.
