The Haunted Shortstop

This is a creepy collection of stories about athletes who have been haunted by ghosts on the baseball diamond, football gridiron, basketball court and the soccer field. Among the chilling stories: a boy whose baseball glove was haunted, the girls’ soccer team who practiced on a field built on an old family burial ground, the basketball player who received advice from a ghost.

Many people, including kids, claim they have seen ghosts in all sorts of places like cemeteries, bedrooms, attics, schools, roadways, forests and caves. In many cases, experts were called in to investigate these so-called hauntings. Usually the experts walked away baffled. All they knew for sure was that something weird had happened that could not be fully explained.

Each book in the Haunted Kids series is a creepy collection of eerie tales based on, or inspired, in part, by real-life cases taken from the files of noted ghost hunters.

Do ghosts really exist? You might think so after reading the spooky stories in the Haunted Kids series.
