A major league baseball player visiting Milwaukee for a series against the Brewers seemingly had his performance suffer after encountering a ghost at a notoriously haunted hotel. Carlos Martinez of the St. Louis Cardinals was staying at the infamous Pfister Hotel when the spooky sighting occurred. In a post to his Instagram account, the pitcher nervously recounted how a ghost had just appeared in his hotel room and that he was now too afraid to sleep alone.
It would appear that the experience, or perhaps the lack of a good night's rest because of it, came back to haunt him the next day as he was shellacked for five runs in just four innings of work. Whether the apparition was truly to blame for his less-than-stellar outing is a matter of conjecture, since Martinez has been plagued with troubles since his return from an injury a few weeks ago. Nonetheless, he joins a long line of other players who reportedly ran into the spirits said to reside in the Pfister Hotel.
