Halloween has always been my favorite holiday. I love everything about it and everything that goes with it. I decorate for Halloween (more than I do for Christmas) I send out Halloween cards and to a few special people, gifts.
A few Halloweens ago, I sent a book to a 6th grader who has never liked to read. It was titled Haunted Baseball. I had the hope that his love of baseball and Halloween would get him reading. I don't think he ever finished the book, but I LOVED IT! Yes, I read it before I wrapped it.
The stories told are from people involved in all aspects of the game, players, umpires and front office personnel. From the hidden passageways at Dodger Stadium, to a haunted spring training complex in Florida to the legendary ghosts who wouldn't leave the old Yankee Stadium these stories will pull you in. Who has experienced these hauntings? Jim Thome, Johnny Damon, Ken Griffey, Jr. and Roberto Clemente all have hair-raising stories to tell!
Haunted Baseball is a fun and easy read and perfect for this time of year!
