Field of Screams:

Haunted Tales from the Baseball Diamond, the Locker Room and Beyond

By Mickey Bradley and Dan Gordon


From the authors of the bestselling Haunted Baseball: Ghosts, Curses, Legends & Eerie Events comes the highly anticipated sequel Field of Screams (The Lyons Press, August 2010).

 

Drawn from more than one thousand interviews with current and former major leaguers, Field of Screams reveals more of the sometimes bone-chilling, sometimes heartwarming, sometimes hilarious stories that make their way around clubhouses, team buses and water coolers.

 

We’ll learn the untold truth about the buried Red Sox jersey at the new Yankee Stadium and the televised Cubs exorcism of Wrigley Field.  We’ll hear spine-tingling stories about the corridors underneath Anaheim Stadium and sentimental ghost stories about the late Ty Cobb in Detroit. Babe Ruth’s granddaughter and dozens of others share Ruthian ghostlore. And Pittsburgh Pirates players share stories about the notoriously haunted Roberto Clemente dorm room. Casting a wider net than Haunted Baseball, the authors explore rumors of ghosts, voodoo, evil spirits, “monster forces” and shift-shaping demons in Asia and Latin America.

 

Field of Screams captures the soul of the game and memorializes its legendary players and historic moments. From haunted hotels to ballpark ghosts to departed Hall-of-Famers who don’t know the game is over, Field of Screams is chock full of fun, quirky stories that will delight skeptics and believers alike.

 

The Field of Screams roster includes Derek Jeter, Ichiro Suzuki, Tim Lincecum, Roy Halladay, David Wright, Jacoby Ellsbury, Alex Rodriguez, Tim Wakefield, Evan Longoria, Jered Weaver, Hideki Matsui, Geovany Soto, Torii Hunter, Matt Kemp, Adrian Beltre, Bobby Cox, Barry Bonds, Orel Hershisher, Jason Bay, Joe Maddon, Daisuke Matsuzaka, Ernie Harwell, and many others, who share their perspectives and experiences, both amusing and mysterious.  With a wealth of anecdotes that have never before been told, Field of Screams gives readers an entertaining and eerie look at our national pastime.
