Who you gonna call, University of Iowa baseball players? Apparently six members of the Iowa Hawkeyes have already phoned up the real-life equivalent of the Ghostbusters, according to the Daily Iowan, who confirmed that the players are living with two other roommates they didn’t even know about. Paranormal researchers say there is a long-deceased little girl and grandfatherly man also inhabiting their space. “We’ve lived here over the past two years,” said junior pitcher Aaron Smit. “But over the past few months, we noticed things getting a little bit weird. We had a kid in here who thought he saw a ghost — a shadow in a form of a human.” In addition to your run-of-the-mill poltergeist interactions — objects seemingly moving around rooms, television channels switching without any seeming reason — at least one players says he actually saw the little girl in his bedroom, and everyone in the house claims to have heard once incident involving the slamming of an upstairs door multiple times. The attic-bedroom of the house also seems to be a focal point, with multiple people saying they became “depressed” or felt malaise while inside. However, that probably isn’t the most bizarre incident, which involved two players’ girlfriends. While the women were sleeping, their underwear was removed — while they were wearing pants or bottoms — and ended up in another place in the room. Perhaps unsurprisingly, after living in the house for two years, the players have decided to call it quits and not renew their lease. While nothing seemingly malicious has happened, they’ve had enough of “Tim” (the name they’ve given to the old man ghost) and the little girl. “I’m on Tim’s good side,” said first baseman Brian Niedbalski. “I want to leave it that way.” Photo via Wikimedia Commons/Duane Banks Field
