Please tell J.G. she has nothing to fear. We're contemplating a visit to St. Petersburg and the historic Vinoy hotel, which some claim is haunted. A few years ago, a pitcher for the Cincinnati Reds swore he was visited by a ghost inside his room while other major leaguers have backed up the story with those of their own. http://www.hauntedbaseball.com/preview.html
I've stayed at the Vinoy quite a few times over the years and have yet to see a ghost, hear any strange noises, or ever wonder to myself, 'You know, I think there's a ghost in my room.' I've known a few frightened ballplayers who have refused to stay at the Vinoy and checked into other hotels when their teams were in town. Now, after listening to my stories, J.G. is a little spooked and isn't so sure she wants to stay there.
Anyone have any suggestions to help ease J.G.'s concerns?
