Zack, your videos inspire me every day to watch. I am a huge fan. Congrats on 10,000! I have school and every day when I get home I look on my iPad to see if you posted a video, and if you did I watch it first thing I do! Thank for inspiring me on trying to catch baseballs!

Congratulations Zack!

My name is Ryan and I just wanted to tell you how much fun it was meeting you at tonight's game. I know you are a very busy person, with you filming for Major League Baseball tonight, but it really meant a lot to my friend Robbie and I that you were able to take time out of your busy schedule to kind of hang out with us for a little. I'm sorry if we were being a bit of a pain tonight, but we really look up to you and are huge fans of you and your work. We are seriously such big fans we would be willing to pay the $1000 to see a game with you next year. This is a night that I will never forget...thank you Zack for everything tonight and I hope you will see this email and possibly respond.

 
 

August 29, 2017

Take care,
Chanan

Hi, I just learned about you a couple days ago. I think you’re an awesome dude. I’m a fellow baseball nut -- but it’s tough to watch games live down here in Australia with the time zone diff.

I’ll be at Yankees Stadium for the first time Sept 16 or 17. Will you be there? I’d like to say hi!

Kind regards, Tyler

 
 

August 24, 2017

Hey zack are you going to this game? Sept 16 twins vs blue Jays i really want to meet you this is my first ever baseball game going to

Hi Zack,

I had vaguely heard of you before, but really enjoyed your segment on "Real Sports" that I happened to watch today.

First off: Screw that asshole, A-Rod, like he needs that ball?

Second off: You're doing something that you love and that is fantastic!

I'm 65 years old, live in Austin, TX, but was born and raised in NYC. I was born the year Micky Mantle was a rookie.

Although I've played tennis my whole life, I'm not a huge sports fan.

One of my earliest passions though was a marvelous group from England that I saw for the first time in the late 60s at the Fillmore East. The group is The Moody Blues and I'm lucky enough to be into a group that's some of the founding members are still performing with, over 50 years later.

I used some tricks to get to meet them and have tambourines, drum sticks and guitar picks from all of my favorites. I've also gotten tambourines and given them to little kids right next to me.

The times that I got those things were some of the most exciting of my life and I cherish them.

I think you're awesome and my advice is keep on doing what you're doing. Not many of us get to follow our dreams.

-Glenn

 
 

August 23, 2017

Zack,

Love what you do. I get it. Others may not, but I get it.

My son, who is 7, goes to be about 8-10 yankee games a year, get an average of 5-6 balls/game (maybe a future ball hawk), and wouldn’t trade them for the world. It is about the memories for him and not the actual balls. Although his catches are much easier, sitting above the dugout……

Don’t let anyone bring you down my friend.

-Jason

August 19, 2017

Zack

We all had the best time! We loved seeing the boys running around, experiencing the game in a different way (through your eyes). I want you to know that you are such a positive person for young people to be around and are in my eyes what a "role model" should be. You are a dying breed! You have taken your passion and turned it into something that others can experience and learn from. It is really hard for kids to find a focus in this world and you have proven you can truly love what you do , LIVE it and use social media responsibly, in a positive way, to share it. We were so lucky to be a part of it for the evening! We will continue to keep in touch and promote you any way we are able. I will be donating to your foundation, in the name of the boys as a xmas gift. I think your message of giving back is so important and again... lost on much of the youth these days!

You are AWESOME! I became a fan overnight. I do have to say the drive home was really rough but worth it! Anytime you want to visit the Hamptons in your 'off season' time.... let us know!

Thank you again. And we all are so anxious to see the video. The kids got a kick out of Brandon's grumpiness. hahaha.

Until next time,

-Tracey, Beau, Vincent and Spencer
 
 

August 19, 2017

Zack thank you so much for last night it was one of the best nights of my life getting to meet you is the best but spending time at a baseball game is 100 times better. Thanks for the tips. Love your vids and Brandon is funny you are the funniest though. It's good to meet you and see how nice you are for doing this. Again thank you and good luck to the road to 10k.

-Vincent

 
 

August 19, 2017

Hi Zack,
My name is Ryan and I am 12. You are a huge inspiration to me and I was wondering if you have an address for fan mail and if I could send you something.
Thanks, Ryan.

 
 
August 18, 2017

I just wanted to let you know that you made one little boy the happiest boy in the world tonight. You took a picture with him and gave him an autograph and a few tips. He has been wanting to meet you for years. He had Read two of your books and get so excited when you post a new video. He even brought your book to some of the Mets games hoping to bump into you. He is at the game with his cousins tonight and called me with such excitement in his voice. Thank you so much for taking the time to say hi to him and making One of his dreams come true.

-Trish

Hi Mr. Hample,

My name is Joey. I’m a high school baseball player and I’m a huge fan of you and your videos! Okay, you probably get that a lot, right? I mean your website and YouTube Q&A videos are filled with letters from fans! But I’m just such a big fan and feel like I have many similarities with you that I felt like I had to write something… even if it isn’t that great.

I LOVE baseball. Much like you, I like watching the game and, well, all aspects of it. My favorite team is the Boston Red Sox. However, recently, I’ve found that I just like the game in general and don’t necessarily root only for the Red Sox but for good players and good plays, as well. I notice, much like you probably do, the game is a lot more fun to watch when you’re unbiased for a team and rather just watching it for the game itself. Also, I’ve seen some of your videos and noticed that you’ve mentioned your least favorite team (but won’t say who it is) and I gotta apologize for Red Sox Nation if the Red Sox are your least favorite team. I get it… the fans are obnoxious.

My goal in my life is to go to all 30 stadiums (and all of the stadiums I can). So far, I’ve been to 16 MLB stadiums. At the games I like to try to get baseballs much like you do and have my own page on MyGameBalls.com. Also, I loved the style of your videos and decided to take my GoPro to the games and record some of it. I like being on my own trying to get baseballs and have used some of your tips from your videos and blogs to help me. (So thank you for that!) Although they aren’t the best videos my channel is here (featuring videos from stadiums such as Fenway Park and Target Field).

You’re probably wondering why I said all of this. Well, I was just such a big fan and I wanted to say something I just didn’t know what and I realized we had some things in common so I wrote some of it… even if I’m a complete stranger to you. I absolutely love baseball, though, so if you ever want to talk about it I’d love to. Sorry if this was not the best letter.

Thank you for taking time to read this,
Joey :)

P.S. Altuve for MVP, right?

 
 

August 18, 2017

Hey My name is Nick, a fan of your YouTube channel. I was wondering if you will be going back to Milwaukee. If you are I would really like to meet you. I will be in Chicago at Wrigley for a Milwaukee Brewers vs. the Cubs game. Go Brewers and good luck on 10,000 balls. My life time total is about 100.

Sincerely,
Nick

Thanks Ben,

 
 

August 16, 2017

Hey Zack! I'm Lucas from Akron, Ohio! I'm a huge fan of your videos! My favorite one is when you went to SunTrust Park with 12 year old Ben! I loved that video! I just wanted to say that I'm a huge fan of your videos!

Hi Zack, I am Will a 10 year old kid who wants to meet up with you. Is it possible that you can put out a schedule at where you are going to be at what dates. I live in Baltimore and really want a 25 year anniversary ball.

Thanks,
Will

 
 

August 13, 2017

Hey Zack! My name is Harrison. I was the guy with the Cal Ripken Jersey at the Fredrick Keys game on August 12th! I just wanted to write you a quick email thanking you on a few things. First how how down to earth and nice you were to me and my brother during the game. I told my parents when I got home that they would have thought you knew me for how interactive and talkative you were towards me! I think it's awesome how you enjoy being recognized and embrace it And not being one of those guys that's just like "get away from me" Second, I wanted to thank you for tweeting me back after snagging Trey Mancini's first career walkoff home run ball. I meant to tell you at the game that your tips actually helped me get that ball. I picked a spot in the bleachers where there was no competition and made sure I had plenty of room to run left and right. I would've never known that if it weren't for your YouTube videos. Third and lastly I would like to thank you for commenting on my brothers video that he made about you on his YouTube channel, Highlight Warehouse. He's done making videos now but he made that when he was about 14 or 15 and he got so excited when he saw that you commented on it.

Thanks again for everything Zack. Keep making awesome videos! Hopefully we'll meet again sometime in the future!

-Harrison

 
 

August 13, 2017

Hey Zack my name is Wade, I’m from Kansas City and I would love to meet you one day wether it’s out on the street or at a baseball game. I was wondering how you got into ballhawking and when you plan on coming out Kauffman Stadium this season? I am planning on going to the royals game on August 22. Hope to see you soon and keep up the good work Zack!

Sincerely,
Wade

 
 

August 13, 2017

Hey Zack!

I love your videos so much, your channel entertains me so much and you are a really funny guy. I live in New Jersey, and I am a really big Yankee fan! I'm 14 years old, however, my parents were born in Russia so they aren't big baseball fans and I barely go to any games. If you can go to a game with me that would be awesome! I would love to catch a ball! Whether it be Yankee Stadium or Citi Field, I would love to spend the day, or night with you. The Yankees are in town hosting the Mariners from the 25-27, and that's when I would like to go. Hopefully you respond and let me know if you are available anytime then, so we can maybe start planning this. Thanks for reading, and have a great day!

From,
Lionel

 
 

August 12, 2017

Hi Zack,
My name is Niles we met in may at a game at nationals park and since the all star game is coming up I would like to inform you that you can stay FOR FREE at my house in Arlington VA for all star week this will save you hundreds of dollars on accomadations in DC so you can not worry about that.

Thanks,
Niles

 
 

August 9, 2017

Hi zack how's it going! I'm Russell and I'm 16 years old. I'm a huge fan of your videos and everything that you do! I was wondering what I needed to do to be able to participate in the "Watch With Zack" when you come to Fenway Park this season. I'd love to chat with you and snag some baseballs. Please get back to me if you have the chance.

Best wishes,
Russell

 
 

August 8, 2017

Hi Zack,
I love your videos on YouTube as well as your book and they have gotten me into ballhawking. I'm not all that great at it but I have lots of fun doing it and that's what truly matters. Also, you have helped me enjoy going to baseball games again as they were once boring for me and I had drifted away from going each year. I've created my own glove trick and am very excited to use it at the next game I attend. Lastly, you have helped me feed my competitive drive again. I recently stopped playing competitive sports due to the fact that they were getting in the way of schoolwork. However, I missed the feeling of competing and winning. I tried other solutions to fill the void but to no avail. Yet once I began ballhawking, I had the feeling of competition and success once again, which is something I truly appreciate. Don't listen to the haters Zack, for they are simply jealous of your success and happiness. Keep doing what you are doing, you are an inspiration to many. Hope to see you at a game sometime!

Sincerely,
Zach :)

 
 

August 8, 2017

Hi Zack,

My 10 year old son, Noam, is a huge fan of yours and baseball in general. He has seen all your YouTube videos, spent hours practicing the glove on the string trick and gone to as many games as possible to try to catch baseballs (he has had some success).

We live in Israel but are in New York for the next 2 weeks, any chance you are available to meet a fan and show off your collection? Noam is a huge Yankee fan and since we got to the US for our visit has already been to 2 New York Yankee games, 1 Scranton Wilkes Barre RailRiders game, 1 Staten Island Yankee home game and 1 Staten Island Yankee road game (against the Brooklyn Cyclones) as well as a trip to Cooperstown.

Thanks in advance and hoping we get a chance to meet you,

Hillel

 
 

August 7, 2017

Hey Zack! I am going to the Yankees mariners game aug 27th. I got bleacher seats for the game and I was wondering if you were going. Zach you are amazing and sick at catching baseballs. I recently ordered your watching baseball smarter book. Can you please come to the game with bleachers seats. It would mean so much to me. If you can't, please tell me any advice you have for bleacher seats.

Sincerely,
Anthony

 
 

August 6, 2017

Hey Zack,

My name is Jakob. I've emailed you once before. I was wondering if your day at Petco Park has been established?

I hate to be a nag, but I've wanted to say hi and have you sign the book that I bought that you had written.

I always mention your name, when my friends think I'm crazy for asking Koji Uehara for a ball in Japanese, or looking up the umpires or coaches. You've no doubt, been an inspiration when it comes to getting balls at games and your methods have been put to use and of course they work!

I'm not exactly sure how I would know what day you'd be at Petco, but I hope to run into you there!

Thanks a bunch,

-Jakob

 
 

August 6, 2017

Hello Zack and thanks for reading this I hope. August 13 is my son Jacobs 14th birthday. He watches all your videos and loves watching and waiting for a new ones. He's a awesome son and little brother. I was hoping you could make his birthday the best my send him anything I'd be happy to pay you for whatever and your time. I know that if he received something from you that this would make his day. Thank you for your time.

-Jim

 
 

August 3, 2017

Dear Zack,

I realize it's baseball season and you may not be able to email back, but had to tell you that your books and videos are very much enjoyed by my son Gaines who is 12. He pitches and plays first base and loves the game! We have taken a trip this week and seen the Tigers, Pirates, and Indians and he has gotten at least one baseball in each stadium thanks to your advice including different hats/shirts/colors/etc. We live in Texas and love the Rangers! He looked for you the night before Beltre hit his 3000th-ha!

Anyway, he just wanted to say thanks!

-Becky

 
 

August 3, 2017

Hi Zack. Nice to meet u. I love watching your videos(and your old beard!)Just wanted to say to keep up the good work.

Your work inspired me to start using your tips and tricks. I tried to make the glove trick out of shoestring. It failed. Anyway, I recently went to a Indians game for my birthday. I was the first one and got 2 batting practice baseballs! The game was so much fun and got to see my first ever walk off grand slam.

I live in Ohio and go to reds and Indians. Your videos are so inspirational and entertaining to everyone of your subscribers. KEEP IT UP!!!

I wish that every MLB game I get to attend, I wish I see you. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!!! Zack, if you read this, I wish you good luck on getting to 10,000 this season. Also if you can, it would mean the world if you could respond.

Sincerely,
Ethan, Your most inspired fan

 
 

August 1, 2017

Hi Zack-

I was wondering if you could make a trip down to Hartford, CT to watch the Yard Goats play, with me, to do a "Watch With Zack" game. Yes, I know the Yard Goats are the Rockies AA team, but their ballpark is rated the best in AA, and it has a 30 foot right field wall, which has an amazing walkway behind the seats up there. Since the wall is so close, players hit balls into the street behind it before the game during BP. The stadium does not open early enough for BP, but since it opens an hour and a half before game time, you can sometimes catch the last 30 minutes of BP. Being a season ticket holder there, the players have gotten to know me. I am 15 years old, and its been my dream to ballhawk a game with you, who is probably the greatest ballhawk of all time. I am also a huge autograph collector, so another prized item would be a ball that you caught, that is signed by you.

So, if you could make time this year, or maybe next year, to come to the best stadium in AA baseball, that would make my ballhawking career a huge hit!!

Thanks so much for reading this!!

-Owen

Dear Zack,

My name is Greg and I am 15 years old from Boston Massachusetts. I live in a very small town outside of Boston called Medway. It is about an hour away from Fenway Park. I usually go to about 5 or 6 games a year. I wanted to let you know how much your videos impacted me. When I was about 13 I started to see your videos pop up on YouTube. I could really relate to you and your videos because you are just like me. I love to get into the park as soon as it opens, I love to run from one end of the park to the other to try to get a ball, and I love to stay for the very last pitch. Over my 15 years, I have snagged 20 balls (including a 100 year commemorative baseball from Wrigley and Fenway!) I really enjoy your tricks and tips you provide in your videos, they are very helpful. I actually just went to last nights Red Sox game at Fenway against the Indians, and snagged 5 balls just in BP! I also found out that I will be going on August 3rd to see the Red Sox play the White Sox! It would be so cool and exciting to see you at a game that I am at! If you could please respond and let me know if you will be going to any more Red Sox games this year, that would mean the world to me.

Thank you again Zack.

Your biggest fan, Greg

 
 

August 1, 2017

Hey man I love all of your videos and I have read all of your books and you are an idol to me I have always wanted to start ball hawking and i wanted to know if sometime next year we can could do this... I love in Kansas City and it would be cool if we could watch a game... (we could even go to St. Louis if needed) but we are willing to pay and would be a dream come true keep it up and hopefully talk to you soon

-Alex

 
 

August 1, 2017

Hey Zack, are you going back to Atlanta anytime soon or Cincinnati it would be really cool if I got to do the meet and greet thing you do! Ballhawking with you would be a blast! Thanks Harrison

 
 

August 1, 2017

Hey zack my name is trace and I would like to catch a game with u when will u be going to st.louis for a game? I would really like to meet u.!!! P.s I might be going to a Springfield cardinal game it's a minor league team and I don't usually don't go but if you could make it that would be awesome please reply back to tell me when you were going to St. Louis so that I could get a ticket to meet you. Thanks!!

 
 

August 1, 2017

Hi Zack - Hope you are well.

Looks like I will have a business trip in Boston 8/16-17. The Red Sox are home the 16th vs St. Louis.

I have a 10 year old that watches your videos all the time - I came home from work today and he was watching the video you had with the family that you took the kid to the Rockies/Mets game.

I read your FAQ's and I would need to check with my wife of course first, but wanted to see if 8/16 at Fenway was an option.

My son would love it......

-Christopher

 
 

July 31, 2017

Hey Zack, so i'm a huge Red Sox fan. I was at the All Star game this year in Miami. During batting practice when you were in right field i was a few rows behind you since you were in the front. I ended up later saying hi and taking pictures with you. Thank you for that. There is also one other thing i want to thank you about. During batting practice i was trying to get Chris Sale and Craig Kimbrel's attention. So a few minutes later, someone hit a ball by the bullpen, and Chris Sale went over picked up the ball and looked up who to throw it to. He looked straight at me, pointed right at me with the ball in his hand, and threw it up. Since there were other people around me with gloves i was gonna have to earn the ball. And i did. I caught it over about 3 people all with gloves and once i caught it Sale pointed at me and threw his arms up in celebration and we had a little moment after that. It was truly amazing. And i was even more happy when i saw that in your Home Run derby video you got the moment on camera. And i want to thank you and your camera man for that.

 
 

July 31, 2017

Dear Mr. Zack Hample,

I am a Philadelphia, Pa resident who recently started watching your VLOGS on YouTube about you traveling to different MLB Stadiums and snagging baseballs . Zack, I have to give you Praise The Videos are Awesome and your work at doing it is Fun and Clever. I too am a baseball fan actually a fan of all the four Professional Sports League, but Baseball is by far the most Family Oriented Sport that has been a Tradition for so many years.

I think its very cool how you travel to all The 30 MLB Stadiums with your videographer and Do a Great Job at doing what you do. I have to give you props in getting two Famous Milestone Baseballs 1) Mike Trout's 1st Ever Homerun against The Baltimore Orioles at Oriole Park at Camden Yards in 2011) 7/24/11. 2) Alex Rodriguez 3,000th Hit (Homerun) to Right field against Detroit Tigers at "NEW" Yankee Stadium on 6/19/15. Zack, you getting those two Historic Milestone Baseballs was Great and Well Deserved. I know you wanted to get Albert Pujols 600th Homerun in Anaheim earlier this Year, but even though you didn't get it you made an A+ effort in trying.

Anyways I just wanted to write to say I am a fan, keep up the Great Work and I hope you get the 10,000th Ball very soon. I noticed you mentioned in your videos "The 2 Favorite MLB East Coast Stadiums" you enjoy are 1) Oriole Park at Camden Yards - Baltimore 2) Citizens Bank Park- Philadelphia. That's cool I've been to Both and I live about 30 minutes from Citizens Bank Park. In the near future maybe we can go to a game and you can show me your strategy in getting the Baseballs. Zack, Once again Keep up the Good Work I will be watching your videos and Take Care.

Sincerely,

Harlan K.
"MLB FAN"

Hi Zack,

I live in London, Ontario, Canada and I just wanted to write you and say hello, I don't need or want anything other than a hello back. What you do for charity is amazing, and I love watching you on YouTube. Watching your videos and seeing all the other baseball parks is really cool. I've only been to a handful of stadiums, Rogers Centre, old Tiger stadium, and progressive field so watching you explain other ballparks is neat.

Thanks for all you do and keep up the great work, it doesn't go unnoticed.

Thanks,
Keith

Dear Zack,

Hi Mr. Hample, my name is Zach Blair. I'm so thrilled that we can share the same name. I also think it's really cool that we share the same love of baseball. When I go to Major League Baseball games I usually go out and get autographs from really any player I can. This love of mine was influenced by your love of getting baseballs thrown to you or using your baseball glove. I forgot how many consecutive games I've got autographs from but it's been awhile. Thank you for influencing my new hobby. I love to watch your videos all the time. As an autograph collector I ask with all my heart, may I please have your autograph Mr. Hample. It would make me very happy. If you do decide to send me and autograph my address is [redacted]. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your time and for your autograph if you decide to send me one.

Your Fan, Zach

Hi Zack,
My name is Aaron and I'm 15 years old. I saw you recently at a Phillies vs. Astros game on July 26. I was in right field during BP (only my second time ever seeing BP in person) and I turned around and saw you! I was so shocked to see you there. I have watched your videos and read your blogs since the beginning of last year and I have used many of your tips to snag baseballs. I usually only go to day games but I have still managed to go 5 straight games of snagging at least one ball thanks to your tips. At the Phillies game on July 26, I got Joaquin Benoit's warmup ball tossed up by Phillies bullpen catcher Jesus Tiamo in the seventh inning. Also, it was nice meeting your mom, she was very nice! You are my inspiration for ballhawking and I love the game of baseball even more thanks to you. Good luck on snagging 10,000 baseballs and I can't wait to see that YouTube video and (hopefully) blog post when you snag your 10,000th ball.

Sincerely,
Aaron

P.S. - I would love to come to the Argosy bookstore one day and I especially loved the blog posts when you snagged A-Rod's 3000th hit, Mike Trout's first home run, and at Kauffman Stadium when you snagged 32 balls.

Hey Zack,

I'm a huge fan and I recently met you at AT&T park during the Giants vs Padres series, I was just wondering if you're going to post a video about that day because that would be really cool! Thanks.

Hi Zack,
Just wanted to start off by saying I love your videos. I watch every single one right when they come out. I recently won a SF Giants contest (snapchat filter design) and I was given two BP passes and two lower box tickets. It is for the game on 8/22 vs Brewers. I would be willing to take you along with me. I know getting baseballs is your main thing, but this is also a cool opportunity where we can get in almost 3 hours early and be up close/meet and get the players autographs. Let me know if you're interested.

I watch all of your videos. You are really inspiring to me and when you have back A-Rods 3000 hit that was a big deal cause you have been waiting your whole life for the moment I don't know what I would do if I got that. I would probably set it on my dresser. But I would do the right thing like you did and give it back. The coolest thing EVER is when you do your world famous glove trick that you did when you were 14 and you invented yourself. I cant believe you got Mike Trouts first homer. Wow my name is Brady and I am 14.
