He has enough baseballs to start his own Major League. But why?
Zack Hample sees that baseball. Zack Hample wants that baseball. And if you want to beat him to it, you'd better bring your A game.
He's been snaring foul balls, stray balls and home run balls at Major League parks for 15 years with no sign of stopping anytime soon. He's now approaching 3,000.
“When Zack got that first ball, it was like a baby shark tasting blood for the first time," says his Dad. "It was like an epiphany.”
The New York Times piece fails to answer one important question, though. If they're not signed and don't have any historical significance, aren't they all the same?
3,000. Isn't that pretty much automatic Hall of Fame induction?
