Tampa Bay Rays third baseman Yandy Diaz is 6-foot-2, 215 pounds. So, you can probably imagine that not much scares the man.
But Diaz has a thing for ghosts.
The Rays face the Milwaukee Brewers in a two-game set this week, and the hotel where the Rays are staying is reportedly haunted.
The Pfister Hotel turns 130 next year and is often used as a temporary home for visiting teams. But it has a history of some ghost stories. Former major leaguer Mike Cameron planned to stay at other nearby hotels because of his interactions with others.

Diaz wanted to stay elsewhere, but was promised a room in the hotel’s new tower, he said.
“All I want is to not have any ghosts in my room,” Diaz said through an interpreter via the Tampa Bay Times.
‘Haunted’ Milwaukee Hotel Spooks Baseball Teams
Diaz’s teammates poked fun at Diaz’s fear.
He taped a cartoon ghost on his door with the word “cuedado,” Spanish for “warning.”
Teammate Ji-Man Choi said he encountered paranormal activity when he was a rookie at the hotel in 2016. If it happens again, they plan to be friendly.
“If I see a ghost, I say hi to him,” Choi said through a translator.
