Angels first baseman Ji-Man Choi​ has been haunted by more than his paltry numbers lately.

The 24-year-old, who is batting .077 with one hit in 13 chances this season, claims that he had a run-in with a ghost on Sunday night at Milwaukee’s Pfister Hotel, the site of multiple reports of paranormal activity. 

According to the South Korea native, a spirit lingered in his bed during the Angels’ first night at the hotel. But Choi says the incident wasn’t his first encounter with a ghost.

“I was scared at first,” he said of his first paranormal experience in 2011. “so I didn’t want to open my eyes. I dealt with that a lot more times after that.”

Maybe this ghost will help scare the rookie straight before he digs his own grave in the majors.
