Man Has Snagged 6,700 Baseballs-Will Be At Target Field Tonight

Zack Hample has snagged over 6,700 major league baseballs. Does this man have a job? That’s a lot of ballgames.

This year alone, he’s been to 38 games in 20 stadiums and has managed to grab 290 baseballs. Target Field tonight will be his 21st stadium, and he’s hoping for another ball or two. Or three.

The coolest part about his quest is this:  For every stadium where Zack lands a game-used ball, a sunflower seed company will donate $500 to the Pitch In For Baseball organization that collects and distributes new and gently used youth baseball and softball equipment worldwide.

The second coolest part is that Zack says there has not been a single time, in over a thousand games, where he has ever knocked anyone over to catch a ball. He takes pride in that.

So he might have a goofy hobby, but he sounds like a good guy.
