Mookie Betts Refused to Stay with Dodgers Teammates at ‘Haunted Hotel’ in Milwaukee

The story of the Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee is one of MLB’s best legends. Known as one of Milwaukee’s most haunted destinations, visiting major league teams are usually checked in to the Pfister while in town to play the Brewers. And the Dodgers are there this week for the three game series against the Brew Crew.

That is, everyone but Mookie Betts.

The six time All-Star outfielder revealed to Bill Plunkett that he refused to stay at the hotel for this leg of the road trip. Instead, he opted to rent his own Airbnb local to American Family Field.

He expanded, adding that he’s stayed at the Pfister before but had no encounters, per se. “But I couldn’t sleep. Every noise, I’d be like, ‘Is that something?!?”

So just how spooky is this hotel?

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinal published a column highlighting several key encounters by MLB stars. Including Adrian Beltre in 2001.

The Dodgers star said he heard knocking at his door while staying at the Pfister, even with the TV and air conditioner turned off.

There are more stories from big leaguers who have described strange happenings at the Pfister. Everything from weird noises to flickering lights, to electronic devices acting up and things moving on their own in rooms.

The Pfister Hotel opened in 1893 and is one of the most luxurious hotels in Milwaukee, as long as you don’t mind a fright here and there.

Just one more night, Kirsten!
