I mentioned earlier in my post about the Phillies
game that I had recognized someone and got a picture with them. As you can tell by the title it is Zack Hample
. He is the best at getting baseballs at games. Gavin and I have quite a few minor league balls, but this guy is insane! He has over 6,000 baseballs that he gets at Major League games and has even written a couple of books about it. We started following his blog a couple years back after seeing him on tv, and we even recognized him on Sports Center top plays a few times. I didn't tell Zack what I was doing but wish I would have...maybe he'll read this. I also forgot to get his autograph. I had a card of Citizens Bank Park that would have been perfect since that is where I saw him.
Zack gets people to sponsor how many balls he gets in the season and donate the money to Pitch In For Baseball
. You can check out his fundraiser information here
This is actually where I got the idea to donate money to NAAF
for the autographs I get. While our programs are different, they still both involve giving to charity and enjoying baseball.
Thanks Zack...hope to see you at another game sometime. Next time I won't forget your autograph!
