Now owned by Marriott, the Vinoy Hotel is a favorite place for major league baseballers to stay while in town. Several claim to have seen a man in a top hat and long coat standing over their bed. One claims to have felt like someone pressed on his back while he was sleeping. No word on why this only seems to happen to the MLB players… maybe he’s a Rays fan?
