Braves lose power at supposedly haunted Milwaukee hotel
MILWAUKEE — The Atlanta Braves woke up Monday to an extended power outage at their downtown Milwaukee hotel, which also left some without running water.
Some players were unable to shower at the Pfister Hotel, which is already infamous among baseball players for being allegedly haunted. Bryce Harper, Michael Young and Pablo Sandoval are among the players who have claimed ghost encounters at the 129-year-old hotel.
On Monday, the Braves were more concerned with switches than angry spirits.
“I went into the bathroom and turned on the light, and it didn’t happen,” Braves manager Brian Snitker said ahead of the team’s game against the Brewers on Monday night.
“In the middle of the morning, I thought that if I didn’t hurry to take a shower, there would be no more hot water, and there was. I took a cold shower. But I had water. In other parts of the place the water went out when the current did.”
Snitker joked about a possible solution to the problem of the shower located a few blocks from the Pfister Hotel:
“There’s a big lake there,” he said, referring to nearby Lake Michigan.
