National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum

Featured on TV’s Ghost Hunters, the baseball museum is believed to be haunted. Witnesses have heard a voice that sounded like baseballer Ted Williams say “persevere, to have courage, to excel and be great.” Other male voices have been heard in the Plaque Gallery. Employees have described a feeling of being watched, as if someone were standing right behind them. Shadow figures, unexplained noises and the sound of the men’s restroom door opening and closing also have been reported. The old baseball artifacts housed here are believed to still be connected to some deceased players, or perhaps even fans, who don’t want to let go of their favorite pastime.

  1. I was in the plaque hall, as a Red Sox fan I had some comments about old Yankee hall of famers..after finishing the 1st and 2nd floor. My wife and I decided to head over and grab a bite to eat before starting the third floor. While walking out and onto the street I noticed my faced to have a burning sensation! Once at the restaurant, I asked my wife of I had accidentally cut myself. That’s when she notice two scratch marks across my face! Now, I’m a skeptic, but even I thought this was wierd. Don’t really have an answer…. maybe someone does.
