Papa Emeritus IV Ghost Baseball Jersey
Ghost got into America's favorite pastime on Sept. 22, 2022, when Forge lobbed the ceremonial toss before the White Sox played the Cleveland Guardians at Guaranteed Rate Field, the Sox's home stadium.

While jarring to see the heavily made-up Forge in a baseball uniform, it was exciting to know he was uniting rock and metal with the sport. The Guardians beat the Sox that day with a final of 4–2.
Ghost lovers might as well get in on the jersey action now. Because who knows how long Papa IV will stick around. In a video this month, the Papa struggles with a juice box before he awakens the spirit of the related Ghost character Papa Nihil — essentially the amassed representation of Forge's past priest (I-III) characters.
Does this mean a new Papa is on the way? We don't know much yet for now. But perhaps Forge is planning another thematic Ghost re-tool for future music.
