Mookie Betts Too Spooked By Haunted Team Hotel - The Pfister
By The Big Magazine Staff
The Los Angeles Dodgers are in Milwaukee, and star outfielder Mookie Betts has opted out of staying at the historical Pfister Hotel, where the rest of team is staying, due to its haunted history.
Betts has stayed at the Pfister on past road trips to Milwaukee, but ahead of this week’s game with the Brewers, he’s decided to avoid the haunted hotel. According to Hauntedrooms.com, The famed Pfister Hotel is one of the haunted locations in Wisconsin, and arguably one of the most haunted hotels in the country. It is a historical landmark in Milwaukee which is the home of professional baseball and basketball teams whenever they are in town.
“I couldn’t sleep. Every noise I’d be like ‘Is that something?’” Betts said of his previous stay at the hotel.
While the 30-year-old claims he doesn’t believe in ghosts, he’d rather play it safe with the airbnb this time around.
Major league baseball players have reported a wide range of paranormal activity when they stayed in the hotel. Some of the things they reported are electrical anomalies, object manipulations and apparitions.
Adrian Beltre, a player for the L.S. Dodgers, has said in Sports Illustrated that he heard knocking on the hallway and on his door. He went out to investigate but found no one. Later, he saw the air conditioning and the televisions switch on and off by themselves.
When he was sleeping, he was awakened by pounding noises from behind his headboard. He was so scared that he took a bat with him to bed for protection. He was only able to sleep for two hours during his three-night stay.
The Dodgers and Brewers played their first of three games on Monday. Bett's hit a lead-off home run, sparking the Dodgers' 6-2 win on Tuesday night before the series wraps up Wednesday, at which point the team will return to Los Angeles for a series against the rival Padres.
