One of the most forgotten ghost stories would have to be the long-lost mystery of the ghost of Eddie Plank.
Eddie was a Hall of Fame pitcher from Gettysburg who sadly passed away in 1926. Eddie was put in the Hall of Fame for being the first ever left-handed pitcher to have won 300 games. He quit baseball in 1917 and then passed away in 1926. That was the last that was heard of Eddie until 1996.
Randomly in the middle of the night, the new owner of Eddie's house heard strange noises. The noises started when the 1996 baseball season began, and consistently happened throughout the entire season until it was over. The noises were a pattern of a grunt, thud, then steps. With the new owner was able to conclude that this was Eddie because not only did it sound like a pitcher but he was able to calculate the span between the grunt and the thud, and it was 60 feet, which is the official distance between the pitchers' mound from home plate. Nobody had a reasonable explanation for why this happened other than maybe Eddie missed playing baseball.
