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.

But he robs them of the joy of catching a ball for themselves. Any way you look at it, one man standing over a crowd of children pumping his fists is a little strange.

He gives them to kids

Because that’s the only way he makes money, that’s his job dumbass

You just... don't get it do you? You don't.

I don't get why there are assholes like the stupid bullpen catcher. You pay money just like everyone else. Fans should be able to feel rewarded by being able to get baseballs. What a jerk, he should be replaced.

Pei K because kids deserve it more than some middle age asshole who pushes past kids to get it. One day he’s gonna push past the wrong guys kid and get fucking wrecked.

the catcher or Zack? Zack's been falsely accused by haters for running into kids all the time, he's done a fine job handling lamers. ACCUSERS needs to grow up or stop being jealous.

What a loser. A pro Ball player telling other pro Ball players not to throw balls to fans. And going as far as moving balls from the warning track.

you weren't even close to knocking him down

Why don’t you just let the kids catch them and experience it instead of catching it for them and handing it out? :/ like you seem cool and all, just takes away the experience in my opinion.

It's because he wants to add to his baseball catching streak

Zack Hample why does Brandon Sloter not film your videos anymore and will be ever film them again?

Just keep doing you. Because you start to grow old when you stop doing the things you love to do.

Forget the haters! Keep it up Zack! Enjoy it!

U already caught a ball. Let the other kids hustle to get their ball instead of a grown man catching it for them then giving it to them. And trying hard as hell to get as many as u can like a lunatic. Relax. Your like a 40 year old 14 year old

Ur just mad u can’t catch a ball at a game bro

1 week ago

Dude it’s his job. It’s fun for him. The kids have plenty of time in their lives to catch a baseball that they’ll forget about in the next couple of hours. Zack has an honest passion for the game of baseball and has found a hobby in ball hawking. Don’t hate on something he enjoys.

1 week ago

Jaime A. yeah and that’s really kind of him to do but it takes away the experience of actually catching it yourself.
