Comerica Park Possibly Haunted?

Comerica Park employees claim they are seeing the ghosts of past players and personnel roaming the concourses of the Tigers’ home field.

Employees who work there swear they occasionally see a shadowy apparition in the lobby, and sometimes the elevator mysteriously opens and closes as if it’s carrying an invisible passenger.

The Comerica hauntings are chronicled along with other baseball ghost sightings in the new book “Field of Screams: Haunted Tales From the Baseball Diamond, the Locker Room, and Beyond,” written by authors Dan Gordon and Mickey Bradley.

Comerica was only erected back in 1999, but many believe the old tenets of Tiger Stadium have packed up shop and moved to the new place.

“Many people think Comerica is haunted,” Gordon said. “The workers see Ty Cobb, and even the players think the ghosts of old players who previously haunted Tiger Stadium have moved to the new park — especially after the old park was demolished in 2008.”

“The new parks emulate the old parks,” Gordon told AOL News. “That sense of awareness contributes to the feeling that people are seeing ghosts because they want that connection to the sport.”

Note to self: do not take elevator at Tigers games.
