The person who accused me wasn't just some random fan. It was the Pirates' bullpen catcher! See for yourself -- this was total B.S. And just so you know, I've attended more than 1,600 Major League Baseball games over the past 30 years and *never* knocked anyone down. That's not what I do or who I am. I'll admit that I reached in front of people for some toss-ups many years ago, but I learned from my mistakes. Now I try to be generous, and I've always been extremely careful not to bump into anyone, so this kind of nonsense is super lame. There've been lots of false accusations over the years, but there's zero proof. So many lies. So many haters. So much sloppy journalism. Good thing I now have a videographer with me at most of my games so I can reject these bogus claims.

Aside from the drama during batting practice, this was a fascinating day for several reasons. First of all, stadium security finally cracked down on fans using ball-retrieving devices. Secondly, I headed up to the upper deck to take in the best view in MLB, and third, a Pirates player suffered a devastating/career-threatening injury.

Shout-out to my friend and fellow ballhawk Erik Jabs (aka "Jabs Family" on YouTube) for helping me get into the LF seats early with the season ticket holders and for being generous over the years in many ways. Check out his channel if you get a chance:

Thanks so much for watching -- much love and stay tuned for MANY videos coming up this week. I've fallen far behind, but I'm going to try to post one video per day. Yow!!

Dude, thanks for saying that about PNC Park and Pittsburgh itself. Hearing someone gush like that over the city you grew up in, really put a smile on my face. I know it was small, but it really nice to hear from someone who probably sees so many beautiful cities like yourself!

Oh, and P.S. that bullpen catcher definitely doesn't represent us or the Pirates. You're awesome!

P.P.S. And I do hope they loosen back up on devices. It's stupid how one idiot can ruin things for everyone!

Zack Hample I think the Pirates PR dept needs to receive an email from you, copy someone in the Commissioner’s office in NY. I don’t care who the guy is tight with. He could be Jimmy Leland’s nephew, I’m certain he’d get a stern and serious warning for that behavior. Regardless of how someone feels about ball hawking or you in particular, that’s no way to treat paying customers in a home park.

+TheAlphaNorth good for them. That doesn't really disprove my point. And either way, you do realize I'm joking, right?

I go on YouTube to watch baseball and football games I missed.... and things like that y’all go on here to write hate and shit.... what low life’s you guys are... so I’ll tell u this HOW ABOUT U GROW UP.... AND STOP HATING ON PEOPLE WHO HAVE DONE NOTHING WRONG.... y’all can hate on me all u want but your not gonna get anywhere😂🤷🏻‍♂️

Hi Zack. I can't believe a team hasn't offered you a job as a scout. You know every player and where they are likely to hit a ball.

Jeff Stewart that literally doesn’t matter to be a scout.... he has an app that tells him and it’s common sense that the righty’s would hit it to left field

I like the content because i am an Aussie branching over to baseball from cricket but i must ask when the ball bounces off a kids glove like the first ball you do give it back right?? because i would feel like its a little wrong if you didn't but anyways enough outta me keep up the good videos man the footage from inside MLB stadiums is giving me an experience i will probably never get to experience in real life.

I’m a little divided on this subject. I think Zack’s channel is very good for the game. Yet I cringe super hard when I see anyone over 14 with a glove at the game. Just my opinion, I’d never give anyone shit for doing it though. Enjoy the game any way you like as long as baseball is the focus. I’m just gonna cringe hard 😂

You should watch more of his videos before commenting something like this. He always gives away his balls to kids.

He gives them away after he catches them... he rarely keeps any BP balls and if he keeps them he donates them to charity.
