“Ghost Man on second and two outs” would have been a phrase that I announced more than a few times during my childhood. I loved to play neighborhood baseball. Since there was often only three or four of us playing we had to use our imaginations a bit.
If I hit a double allowing me to safely arrive at second base (which was usually represented by a reflector in the middle of the street), I would need to put a “Ghost Man” on second so that I could hit again.
Sometimes we would get really creative and announce, “Ghost Man just stole third!” Or, the defense would pick him off because his lead off was too aggressive.
