Renaissance Vinoy Resort (Ghost Hunters) - TAPS investigates the legendary Renaissance Vinoy hotel, Major League Baseball's favored paranormal getaway.

Built in 1924, the Vinoy has always been a preferred vacation spot for the rich and famous. Today, the facility is the visiting-team hotel for the Tampa Bay Rays.

The Vinoy Park Hotel (also known as the Renaissance Vinoy Resort and Golf Club) is a
historic Mediterranean Revival styled hotel in downtown St. Petersburg, Florida.

Several housekeepers at the Vinoy have reported seeing a woman in a white gown in various rooms on the 5th floor in broad daylight. When they checked their eyes, she was gone. On the night shift, security personnel reported seeing a figure on the outdoor landing of Suite 253, another woman in a white gown. Concerned that she would jump to her death, they turned for their radio, but she was gone.

The Cincinnati Reds pitcher Scott Williamson had just turned out the lights when he got a tingling sensation, like he was being watched. Then he rolled onto his stomach and felt pressure on him, like he couldn't move or even breathe. He rolled over onto his back and saw a man standing by his curtains.

Other reports from players on other teams include faucets that turn on and off as well as toilets that flush themselves multiple times, flickering lights, and locked and chained doors that swing open.
