Zack Hample is one of the more interesting fans you’ll find in professional sports. He has caught more than 11,000 baseballs at MLB games (home runs + foul balls + ground-rule doubles) which is a world record.
He caught Alex Rodriguez’s 3,000th hit, a home run at Yankee Stadium. Zack also caught Mike Trout’s first home run in the majors. Those are the two most valuable and memorable baseballs he’s caught (obviously) and two that he gave away for free.
Zack traveled to Japan to catch a ball! Honestly, it seems exhausting. Many fans love traveling to new baseball stadiums as much as anyone but Zack Hample is on a whole different planet. He’s traveling nonstop and making YouTube videos at every stadium throughout the season.
Zack Hample holds the world record for the most baseballs caught at MLB games with over 11,000 and that number always continues to grow.
