Nice emails from nice people


February 11, 2018

Good afternoon Zack. My name is Brett Drummond from Sydney Australia. Just writing to you to let you know my son is a massive fan of yours and i am also a fan. On my bucket list is to get my son and I over to Yankee Stadium and Dodger Stadium and come home with a few baseballs. We go to a few Australian Baseball League (ABL) games and have brought home a heap of official balls from this last season. Out here we use Brett Baseballs owned by George Brett hall of famer from the Kansas City Royals. Can i also ask a favour. If you can reply and do a shout out to my son Brody. I have also attached a couple of photos of our Autralian Official Baseballs.

Dear Zack Hample,

My name is Joseph Fischer and I am your biggest fan ever. I am 11 years old and I live in Omaha, Nebraska. I love to go ball hawking and watch your awesome videos. I know that your friend Alex Katz is Jewish and so am I. My Bar Mitzvah project is to collect baseball equipment and donate it to “Pitch in for baseball”. I was wondering if you and Alex could help me donate something to the project. My Bar Mitzvah is May 11, 2019, so there is plenty of time. I hope to meet you one day soon and go ball hawking with you.

Good luck on the 2018 season and thanks in advance for your support.

Your biggest fan ever,

February 4, 2018

Hey Zack, my name is Ethan and I am seventeen years old. I don't have a lot of friends and have alot of passion for baseball, I watch your videos all the time and you inspire me every day to work hard and achieve my goals. I thank you and appreciate what you have done for me.

January 27, 2018

Hey Zack i am a fan of yours and i would like to know if you are going to be snaging baseball's this year at Angel Stadium because if you do i would like to snag them with you and you can make it a Watch with Zack Game.



January 24, 2018

Dear Zack
I’m a huge fan of your I have been watching since you caught the Alex Rodriguez Home Run Ball. And I watch your videos almost every day. Since I’m such a big fan I was wounded if you had a fan mail address?

Your Friend


January 20, 2018

Hey Zack,

I am going to a yankee game in may and I was wondering what time to show up at yankee stadium if I want to try to snag a baseball from the bp group with Stanton and Judge. You are truly my idol and I would deeply appreciate if you could respond to this email.

Thank you



January 9, 2018

Dear Zack,
This is Aaron Friedman from Cincinnati, Ohio. Thank you so much for the signed baseball and very nice video clip you sent for my Bar Mitzvah. It was awesome! I was so happy to receive both the video and the baseball. It was definitely a highlight of the day and is still a highlight now. I always get excited when there is a new video, and can’t wait to watch it. I was so excited when you reached 10,000 baseballs at Camden Yards in Baltimore! It must’ve been an amazing feeling. I can’t wait for you to visit Great American Ballpark in 2018, and to hopefully meet you in person! My dad said he would take us for Skyline chili!! If you want to follow me on social media, I would truly appreciate it, my Instagram and Snapchat are: [redacted]

Thank you again for the amazing video, I still watch it over and over again and can’t believe it’s Zack Hample!

Hey Zack! My name is Ben Reynolds and I live in Danville Kentucky. I love watching your videos and am subscribed to your channel. I would really like to meet up with you at a game sometime. I love going to baseball games and me and my family go to a few games each season. I am not as good a ballhawk as you but I am only 13. I have 31 major league baseballs including 2 commemorative Pete Rose balls. I also have 3 Florida Spring Training Balls and 4 autographs. (And 25 Minor League Balls) I think I saw you at the Pete Rose statue day at Great American but was too far away. I was sitting one section over from the visiting team's dugout. We go to Great American a lot because we live semi-close. I hope to maybe cross paths with you in the 2018 season!

P.S. I loved your book, "The Baseball"

Your Fan, Ben


December 12, 2017

Zack -

How are you. Congrats on a fantastic year!

I am a lifelong New Yorker but living in Tokyo. My 10 year old son has become a massive Yankee fan and I must admit, next to Aaron Judge, you are his next favorite baseball celebrity. He loves your videos, and I’ve just purchased your books for him. He was watching the game when Judge snagged the ball you were going for during the playoffs and he couldn’t figure out what to be more excited with – Judge’s catch or the fact that you were right there. The photo of you and Judge going for that ball summed up everything he loved about the 2017 season.

He and I are planning a baseball trip to the states next year and we’re planning where we want to go. We will obviously spend some time in NY at Yankee Stadium. As a surprise, I’d love to get him a “Watch with Zach” opportunity if we can make our schedules connect and if you’re still doing those things. He would love to hang out at the park and learn from the master.

Hope all is well. Let me know if this is possible. I’d love to surprise him with it.

All the best,


November 30, 2017

Dear Mr. Hample,

My brother and i are huge fans. We went to 4 games this year and I caught 6 balls and my brother got 3. I am really thankful for your videos and the way that you inspire me to go out and have fun. I would love to meat you at your book store in New York. My Grandpas voice doctors office is a block away and he is going to take me up sometime to stop by the store. As always, keep up the great work and catch more baseballs.

P.S: What do you think of Rhys Hoskins

Fellow ballhawk, Elisha


November 14, 2017

Hey Zack! It is truly an honor to send you a mail.

May I present to you, my name is Diego, I'm 18 and am your biggest fan from Mexico. You may recall me from Twitter and Instagram since I always reply with my username "diegoqr35".

If there is something that I enjoy, is watching your videos. Whenever I'm under pressure because of school, your videos are the best part of the day. Your book the Baseball is simply an amazing book filled with research and experience. I really enjoyed it.

I can't tell you how excited I am to see you in Monterrey. While I am from Mexico City (I'll be waiting for you down here in 2019 when MLB has a game in Mexico City), I'll catch a flight to Monterrey. I can't tell you how much you will enjoy it here, the Mexican atmosphere is electric.

Tell me if you would like to catch a bite to eat or simply visit a local place in Monterrey. If you would like, how about after Saturday's game? I know great Mexican places and would love to talk baseball and walk you around the city. My friends tell me I'm virtually a tourist guide in any place around the world because I know a lot about cities hahahah.

Congrats in 10,000, I can't tell you how happy I am for you.

FYI In December, I'm visiting NY so I'll personally leave a letter in the bookstore and something I would love if you would autograph!

Thank you very much for being the best YouTuber that exists and thanks for making me a ballhawk. Lifetime count: 6 (all obtained in 2017).

¡Te espero en mayo! "I'll be waiting for you in May"

Best regards,

P.S your Spanish has improved a lot, your "dame la pelota por favor" is great.


October 30, 2017

Hi Zack! My name's Amara. I'm 14 years old and I live in Chicago. I have been around baseball all my life, my dad loves baseball and my brother plays baseball and practically worship the Astros. But got really interested in it about a year ago. My dad has been a lifelong Chicago baseball fan and we go to Sox games all the time. At first, I was a little bored because the games were super long. But my interest sparked one September night when the Sox played the Royals and I received my very first baseball from Royals reliever, Kevin McCarthy. From then I was hooked.

I started putting more interest in the Cubs because of their championship run (which paid off in the end :)). When the season rolled around in 2017, I was ready to be completely engaged in baseball. First, it was autographs. I got my first from Ben Zobrist while he was walking to the player's parking lot after a game at Wrigley. Then, to get even closer, I thought about getting more baseballs. Baseballs were really tied more to the game. But, I was puzzled on how I could get alot of baseballs. Then, I came across your videos and absolutely loved them! The way you communicated with the players and coaches was very captivating and the way you explored aspects of all of the parks made me feel as if I visited there.

Watching your videos paid off. I was able to get a warm up ball from Jose Abreu and start a small conversation with Jose Bautista. How amazing! My dad absolutely loves how you pursued your passion and uses you as an example of how I can be anything I want to be.
I hope next season to catch more baseballs and get more autographs, and help my brother snag some balls too. I was wondering if you could come to more Chicago games. My brother and I have always imagined what it would be like to run into you. Thank you for escalating my excitement in baseball as teenage girl!

-Amara, avid Cubs, Dodgers, and White Sox fan
P.S. Sorry if the email was really longg.


October 29, 2017

Hi Zack! My son Simon is a 10 year old boy from Chicago who is a HUGE fan of yours. He discovered you about 6 months ago and has been watching and following your videos daily. He has also read your book. He talks about you constantly and your experiences at the ballparks. You have inspired him to want to travel to every baseball park in the country :). He loves baseball but your ballpark adventures have taken his love to a new level. For his birthday this year, he asked for your birthday package which we can not afford, but I was HOPING you would be so kind as to send him maybe an autographed picture or a quick note. It would make Simons year! His birthday is November 17th. If you would be so kind to mail something, our address is [redacted]. I know you are busy but now that baseball season is winding down I was hoping you could do this for us! Thank you for your time!


October 29, 2017

hi my name is Rachi and you motivated. Me to do better in ballhawking you could get 2 balls at end of game one from umpire and one from payers coming out of bullpen and another one if there is a player behind please go to another World Series game at Houston or L.A. keep up awesome work


October 26, 2017

Dear Zack Hample,

I would like to thank you for spending time to sign the stuff I sent you. The photos came back perfect and the card was absolutely gorgeous thanks for the little note too. Congrats on 10k and I hope for you to get more in the future. Can't wait to see you at a game next year hopefully. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Best wishes,


October 24, 2017

Hi Zack,

I just recently discovered your channel. i'm not a huge baseball fan but i find your videos really fascinating. I feel like I have been to all the stadiums in the MLB. your videos make me want to go to more games.

you are THE only channel i have ever subscribed to on youtube. you should feel proud.

Congrats on another great season

if you are interested in knowing where i am located I will give you a hint... the world's oldest baseball diamond



October 23, 2017

Hi Zack!

I'm writing to tell you that my son, Jake age 10, is writing a book report on your book "The Baseball: Stunts, Scandals, and secrets Beneath the Stitches."

I thought you might find that really cool! I was wondering if you could email him so he could use that towards his book report. Just a simple hello would be so cool to him. His email is [redacted].

Here is a pic of him at Game 3 of the playoffs this year at Fenway Park. He went to game 2 and Game 3. He is a huge Red Sox fan! He hasn't caught a ball there yet but you never know!

Thank you so much! Jake loves to watch all of your videos you make too!



October 23, 2017

Hi Zack my name is Ryan. I am 12 years old and I LOVE your YouTube channel. I’ve been watching you for a long time now. You taught me many tricks on catching baseballs. My favorite team is the tigers and I love Comerica Park. Thank you keep doing what you do from your subscriber Ryan


October 22, 2017

I just wanted to write a quick note to thank you for your videos and for the great attitude you bring. I've been going through some rough times lately and your videos have been a good way for me to unwind from what seems like a hectic life right now.

But that's neither here or there.

I just wanted to reach out and say I appreciate what you're doing. The behind the scenes at Fenway was among my favorite videos.

Please keep em coming.

And of course, Yankees suck! Haha

Take care,


October 20, 2017

Hello Zack,

Greetings from Guatemala “the land of the eternal spring” where we love and play some baseball. Hope one day will come and visit, there are direct flights from NYC.

Check out his awesome brand new ballpark in Managua Nicaragua “Estadio Nacional Dennis Martinez” just inaugurated yesterday, Friday-Sunday the Nicaragua national team will play against Taiwan on a friendship match, then Monday October 23rd is the official opening game and season of the Nicaragua Professional BaseBall League (LBPN). The ballpark a seating capacity of around 16,000 and will even include season tickets. They will have a commemorative ball as well.

Hope you can combine a Central America baseball/tourism trip (Guatemala, Nicaragua, Panama).

If there is anything I can do, please let me know.

I also look forward to meet you and learn some late ballhawking from you.




October 18, 2017

Hello Zack, I introduce myself:

I am Carlos, a boy from Zaragoza, a city of Spain between Madrid and Barcelona. I am a big fan of baseball, sport that here in Spain is not played or seen, instead I see all the summaries of the mlb in youtube and a few months ago I found your YouTube channel.

Thanks to your channel I can do two things, improve my English listening to you and enjoy a sport
that I fell in love with.

I like very much to see the different stadiums and to see how you travel them, discovering a completely new world for me, and with those foods ... a little envy!

I never dare to send messages to anyone, but I read on your website that you respond to fans, and as such I am one of them I have decided to talk to you and to know that you have fans across the

The contests you make are supposed to be for people living in the United States, that's why I
never participate, but my birthday is in a month and I would love for you to send me a ball
signed by you, if possible it's clear.

Keep making those videos, maybe in a not too distant time go for the first time to new york and enjoy watching the yankees.

Many thanks and a strong hug.


October 18, 2017


I wanted to thank you for reconciling with Peter. I know that was bothering him and it was admirable what you did. I think your collection is great and I encourage to keep at your passion no matter who says what. I love how you give a portion of them away too and your charities etc. There's always gonna be haters out there like you mentioned to me about your twitter account, but usually that means your doing something right or productive as to why they hate. Let it roll off. It is what it is. The same haters are ones that hate me too for my accomplishments. All the best and I'm sure we will cross paths again. Anything you need...don't hesitate to reach out.



October 16, 2017

Hi Zack this is kellan schummer and I was just wondering if you could meet us at a cubs game next year. If you could that would mean so much to me and my brothers and sisters.



October 15, 2017

Hey Zack I have one of your bobbleheads! I really wanna get it autographed. I live in Texas close to globe life park. Do you plan on going to Houston for the World Series if they make it? If so my parents said they will drive me down they and we can meet outside of the stadium to get your autograph. I've been waiting for a while to ask. please respond so I can know.


October 12, 2017

Hi Zack,
first of all I want to say how much I love your videos. I don't get to go to many baseball games as I live in the UK, but your videos let me see what different stadiums are like - thanks!

I am getting in contact because I have a question for you, it would be great if you could please help me out! I am 18 years old and planning on self funding a trip next summer to see some baseball, but it's likely I'm going to be limited to the East coast to try and keep the flights slightly cheaper. I'm tempted by the All star game and home run derby - would you recommend these events, over going to a series or two of regular season baseball? For me I'd love to get up close to players but also from your videos the all star game and home run derby look awesome.

If you could please get in touch with your thoughts I'd really appreciate it!!

Keep up the awesome videos,


October 12, 2017

Hi Zack,

I just saw the VICE Sports video piece on you and thought it was great. Kudos to you for turning your passion for the game into a tangible output. Appearances on Leno and Conan amongst others...who gets to say they ever did that?!?!

It did bum me out when you were reading the negative tweets though. Don't listen to any of those people. There is so much negativity in the world and it's so pointless. I think anyone who had anything negative to say should watch this VICE video and I bet they change their tune very quickly. That just goes to highlight how reactionary people are and how willing they are to verbally destroy someone they don't even know. The section of the video when you chase down a BP ball in the outfield and ask the child "Did you get one yet?" and then give it to him was a fantastic moment and really highlights what you're doing out there...just participating in a love for baseball.

And for what it's worth, I think you had every right to leave the stadium with the ball and think it over. Why should people be immediately forced to hand over something like that without even having a chance to process what is going on? In the end a charity has $150,000 and A-Rod has his ball. Everyone wins and that's all thanks to you.

Baseball is lucky to have a fan like yourself. Keep on doing what you're doing and don't ever change.



October 10, 2017

Mr. Hample,

Ive got to tell you! I absolutely love the baseball collection and think it is one of the coolest things ever! Love the videos you make and can't wait to read your 3rd book. Also please dont ever stop ball hawking, but I will say I have only recently gotten into it but I am coming for your record..... I wouldn't worry too much though I only got 2.



October 8, 2017

Hi Zack,

I hope you are doing well and enjoying the playoffs. I met you last week at Yankee stadium during the wild card game. It was such an honor to meet you. You seem like a really nice guy. I know we just met, but i was wondering if you would like to join my roommates and I for a sabbath meal (Friday night meal). We live in Washington Heights, on 183rd street, between Audubon and Amsterdam avenue. My roommates and I are observant jews, and we regularly host meals at our apartment. It doesn't matter what religion you follow or how observant you are, everyone enjoys a hot sabbath meal. Besides being a really good time and a good meal, it is also a very meaningful experience. Sitting with friends after a long week, putting your cell phones away (or on silent), singing some songs, and just enjoying each others company, it sounds so simple, but it is something that is very rarely done in our fast paced, technologically run society. We also serve hot dogs and beer :). You can stay for as long as you want. Maximum invite, Minimum pressure. Good sabbath and good luck to you in all of you endeavors. If you would like to come, i will post my cell phone number below, and we can plan a weekend that works best for you.

All the best,


October 5, 2017

Hey Zack! I love your videos, ball hawking is something I love and it's so fun to do. I only get a few chances a year becuase my parents have to take me (Im 16) but those few days that I get to go are the best days of summer. Watching your videos is the next best thing. It amazes me how many balls you can get in just one game. My record in a game is 4. But during my 3rd game since I started ball hawking I caught a foul ball on the fly! Probably my favorite moment yet. I dream to one day do what you do and travel the country getting baseballs. Seems like a perfect life haha. One thing I find ironic though, is how haters are always saying that you're taking and stealing balls from kids and such. Isn't it funny how these are the same kids they're talking about are your fans, who look up to you, and amire what you do? Watching especially your go pro videos just shows how many kids come up to you and want your autograph and a picture every game. Anyways, keep doing you don't let the haters talk shit becuase you're doing just fine. Next goal, 20,000!



October 5, 2017

Hi Zack!

Over the past few weeks, I got into your Youtube channel, and love what you do. Baseball is such a amazing thing, that brings people together. In a time like this, when the world is divided, I have looked to baseball as an escape to forget my worries.

Like you, I love to catch baseballs. I have only gotten like 10 or so in my lifetime, but I worked hard for each one of them. I remember by first ever ball, was given to be my a ballboy. My second was from Ryan Zimmerman of the Washington Nationals, on a third out ball. It was an amazing moment, and I will remember it for the rest of my life.

How did u get into baseball? What drove u to start catching balls, and keep going with it?

Keep doing what are doing, cause I will keep supporting u! Hopefully the next time u come to Washington next season, I can plan a watch with Zack. My mom and I would love it! She loves baseball as well! :)

Anyways, happy playoff season and GO YANKEES!



October 5, 2017

No need to reply Zack, I understand that you are busy and you did mention that you prefer twitter.

My wife and I saw you on “Bryant Gumbel’s Real Sports” show last night. We think your story is inspiring. It’s sad to hear that other people think negatively about your accomplishments. I personally envy your passion, creativity, and dedication to what you love. I did like the part about what you might have accomplished if you had a passion for medicine.

Take care, and we wish you continued success,


October 3, 2017

Hey Zack, congrats on #10,000. Amazing man. Keep on going!



September 30, 2017

Hello, Zack. My son and I met you yesterday at the Yankee’s game.

Thank you for giving him the ball, signing it, and letting him have a picture with you. He has enjoyed watching your videos all last summer... meeting you was, honestly, just as good as meeting Aaron Judge.

I appreciate your kindness and willingness to notice 10 year-olds.

Thanks again! Wishing you a nice evening,


September 29, 2017

Congrats on your 10,000th baseball Zack! All of your hard work has paid off! Enjoy it! That's a huge honor and you should be very proud of yourself. Keep up the good work



September 26, 2017

Congrats on 10k. Here goes the road to 15k. Let's go. Plus thank you for replying on my comment on your 10k video!!



September 21, 2017

Hello Zack!

I absolutely love your channel, and I've been watching for about six months now. I recently looked through your entire website and I'm fascinated with everything, especially the rubber band ball and FAQ section. Also, today in class, my social studies teacher showed us a CNN10, and guess who was on it? Your mom was there with her amazing book store. I knew she worked at a book store, but I had no idea it was so amazing!

I'm a Dodgers fan but I live in Central Oregon so I can't see too many games. Thank you for making entertaining videos, and also congrats on your 10,000th ball! I watched the Zack Hample vs. The World and it was very good! I'm a big fan and hope you reply.

Thank You,


September 16, 2017

Hi Zack, I've been a huge fan of yours ever since last year and I just wanted to Congratulate you on your 10,000th Baseball. I'm 13 and I just now caught my 1st baseball. Which was a Mike Leake warm up ball in the bullpen at Busch . The first time I knew I thought of you as A guy I knew I wanted to be like was when I watched your video at Safeco Field last year when you snagged 20. Now I Know you've mentioned this before....but I am redoing my room and I want it to baseball. Now I was wondering if you could send a baseball, a picture, or just a peice of paper with your autograph on it. Thx a lot good luck in the futures.



September 16, 2017

I watched your documentary and I think it's great. The baseball experience is like no other one that I missed due to illness this year. Keep doing what you love and screw the rest.



September 12, 2017

Hey Zack,

Passion, hard work, and follow through, are things I admire in a person. I am not much of a baseball watcher but I love your youtube channel and your story. I love the idea of someone setting a goal and doing what it takes to accomplish it. No matter the person or what the goal is, the hard work and the journey are what inspires me. Scientist, inventors, weightlifters, or even a guy who sets out to catch 10,000 baseballs, push me to set bigger goals for myself and break new Personal Records.

Congrats on 10,000 and know that your passion for catching baseballs in some weird way has helped 'me become a better me'.



September 12, 2017

Hey Zack. I am a big fan of you. I hope you will make another Q&A soon. Well done on getting 10000 balls. See ya



September 11, 2017

Hi Zack this is Jacob. Today I got the ball, I cried opening it in such excitement I absolutely love your videos. I especially like the Vice Sports documentary on the A-Rod 3,000 hit ball. I am also a fan of the PNC Park ballhawking videos. I recently watched the Zack Hample vs. The World baseball YouTube video on MLB. I would like to thank you again you are the best YouTuber keep up the great work hope to see you at PNC Park one day.

Thank you again


September 10, 2017

Do you know if you will be going to the Oakland Colliseum any more this year because I would love to meet you.



September 9, 2017

Hi Zack. I met you twice at Yankee Stadium right field seats about two years ago. I even had you sign an article written about you at the Stadium and you took a picture of me holding the article and if I remember correctly you put it on twitter.

Anyway I just watched your HBO Sports clip on their latest episode. I just want to say I think it is awesome what you are doing. You are taking your passion and love for baseball and living out your dream. I do not think at all you are taking anything away from anyone. We all go to the ballpark with the dream of catching a home run and you have perfected that skill. There is nothing wrong with that. People are just jealous that you are so good at it. They are just haters who have nothing else to do. If I could make a living traveling around the country going to different ball parks I would jump on it. It is awesome that you are living the dream.

My nephew Matt still talks about when we met you at Yankee Stadium and I think that is cool too. It's a memory that we will always have together and you know as he gets older he won't need his aunt anymore but we will always have baseball and that moment.

Every year I take Matt and his sister Mia to the right field seats living the dream of catching a home run. Maybe one day we will meet you out there again.

Although a die hard Yankees fan, my favorite player growing up was George Brett. One day I will make my way to KC and if I do, who know if I will see you there doing your thing.

But if not I will be looking for you at the Stadium.

Keep living the dream for me!



September 6, 2017

August 29, 2017

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

Hey Zack,

I want to congratulate you on getting your 10,000th ball. It is a true milestone. I know I speak for myself and the rest of my coworkers that we feel very privelaged that you were able to accomplish it at Oriole Park. Hope we can see you again this season.

Take care,

August 24, 2017

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



August 23, 2017

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.



August 23, 2017


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.



August 22, 2017

Dear Zack with a k not an h duh,
Hi I'm Aidan and I'm 13 years old I've been watching ur videos since the video where u caught a ball in the Rogers centre hotel and I fell in love with ur videos ever since I just think they are so cool, and I always thought what would it be like to spend a game with the Zack Hample and it would be the dream come true because I just think ur the best person ever you r so nice and talented and I just can't tell you how much it would mean like I would literally die to do a watch with Zack game and honestly I don't care if you post it on YouTube that's how much I love u all I want is spend a game with u whether on YouTube or not I still want to be with you for a game, I'm from New York in pleasantville in westchester county and I'm a mets fan so maybe we could go to a mets game if u could that would mean the world to me trust me I would do anything I promise, so maybe we can plan something for a game, and if we do I will be the happiest person in the whole entire universe thanks for reading this sorry it's so long it's just wanted to make it as perfect as possible ok bye From,
Ur number 1 fan Aidan


August 22, 2017

August 20, 2017

So i saw on your your on website that in order to go to a game with you.You would have to be great friends or your mom. Since i cant be your mom how do i become good friends with you... Here i will start. My name is Matthew I'm 11 years old I live in Portland, Michigan And I like the Detroit Tigers.Now your turn... Jk... But seriously.

August 19, 2017


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.



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.


August 18, 2017

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 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.



August 18, 2017

Dear Zack I have been watching you catch baseballs for 2 years. I have all ways wanted to watch a game with you I will be at Target Field on Saturday September 2 please write me back

You subscriber Ty


August 18, 2017

Hi! My name is Ben. I am a big fan. I was wondering when you will go back to Camden yards or if you even go back this season I am going to the angles vs orioles on Sunday wondering if u would be there. Keep up with your great content!
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!


August 15, 2017

Hi Zack I am a HUGE fan and would love to meet you. I understand that you have a lot of stadiums to choose from, but if you are going to visit Citizens Bank Park please let me know.



August 14, 2017

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.



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!



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!



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!



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.


August 10, 2017

Hey thank you for the picture at that game with all my friends. Also for putting me on your Instagram story. It was my friends birthday that day and it made it 10 times better for him to meet you. You are super friendly and I wish the best for you. I hope you can see this or respond but anyway thank you so much.


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,


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!

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,



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.



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,



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.



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!



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.

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!!



August 1, 2017

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



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......



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.

July 31, 2017

Hi Zack, I've now been watching your videos for about a few months and meaning to write to you. Your are the best outfielder I have ever seen. YES!! An outfielder... hahaha... anyway I'm going to a Dodgers@ Braves game on august 3 and wanted to know if your going to be there if so I really want to see you there. I admire you. The time you went to Cuba was awesome. My family is Cuban so I was really watching it in depth. You are better then most baseball players. Hope to here back from you soon.

-Marko S.


July 30, 2017

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.



July 30, 2017

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


July 30, 2017

July 29, 2017

July 28, 2017

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.


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.

Hi zack I'm a huge fan and I've been subbed to your channel since 10k. Anyways I'm going on a trip with my family to Camden yards next week for a series against Kansas City. Additionally we will be going to cali for vacation and seeing a padres game on the 20th and angels on the 21st. Just curious if you will be there so I could meet up. Please respond thanks.

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.

Hey Zack a big fan of you're videos and I thought why not ask my mom to order You're book the baseball and I really hope it will be my favorite. I was also wondering when will be you're next appearance at Miller Park because I would love to meet you or if you're ever in Wisconsin feel free to drop by in Oconto and I'll show you around

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.
