Zack Hample is the Biggest Annoyance to Baseball
Anyone who follows baseball somewhat closely is well aware of the dude who makes a habit of snagging balls at the game. That man is Zack Hample, and he is the definition of a man-child. The worst part of it is he has collected some of the most sought-after memorabilia out there.
Hample has over 11,000 baseballs in his collection. The dude has Alex Rodriguez’s 500th career home run as well as Mike Trout’s first. I’d say that’s enough to boost your ego and guess what! It has.
There has always been criticism towards him. In 2017, Dodgers star pitcher Clayton Kershaw had this to say to Hample after he asked for a ball.
“No, you got 7,000 of ’em,” Kershaw said.Quote via Hample’s Twitter
A year prior, Hample tried to get into the Fort Bragg game. Military personnel and family were supposed to be the only people in attendance. He had to barge his way in and attempted to buy a ticket for $1,000. He didn’t succeed and upon receiving backlash, wrote a lengthy apology on Twitter.
Since then, Hample steals baseballs from children and gets in the way of everyone, much to people’s discretion. It’s reached a boiling point in 2022.
Last month, Hample attended a Rockies game. He was vlogging the entire time and found himself in a section trying to snag home run balls. He was doing his usual BS, getting in the way of people and kids trying to make a lifetime memory.
A Coors Field security employee decided to stand up to him and tell him to stay in his seat. For Hample, being the man-child he is, talked back to the elderly worker just trying to do his job. It got to the point where the Rockies’ staff almost kicked him out. Of course, he complained on his vlog.
Sadly, Hample deleted the video but the backlash persists. This sticks out not in the minds of the fans but also players. Cubs starting pitcher Marcus Stroman had this to say to him.
The writing is on the wall, and Stroman speaks the mind of everyone practically. Since the Coors incident, fans are even trying to get him banned from ballparks. One thing I forgot to mention, this man is 44 years old. Yikes.
