Hey Zack this is Nick I am a big fan of what you do I was wondering if you will be able to go see a at home Detroit Tigers game on May 18 and I would appreciate if you did because it’s me and my Mom’s birthday 


May 7, 2019

Hey Zack,  My name is Steven , I emailed you a while ago, but I just want to to say thanks again. I was wondering if you were going to the MLB game in Omaha.  I would love to meet my favorite you tuber. You should go to a college world series game to. Those are super fun too. Thanks for all of your videos. I will be looking forward to the next video.

Steven

P.S. That Trout bat is so sweet.


May 7, 2019

Hey there Zack, 
First off, I am a huge fan of your videos. I too am a huge baseball fanatic but I don’t really get to many games, since my favorite team plays on the other side of the United States. I am e-mailing you to ask you if you will be in DC in late July for the Dodgers @ Nationals game? I would love to get a chance to meet you and possibly get a signature on a ball or something. Just let me know whenever you can. 
Thanks,
Hayden


May 7, 2019

Hey Zack,
If you’re still at the Toronto series tomorrow, would be really cool to meet you.  Emailed you when I was younger and got some great tips and snagged some baseballs. 
Longtime fan,
Hope to see you,
Alex


May 4, 2019

Hey, Zack, my name is Michael and I'm a huge fan of yours but still haven't met you yet. I live in Michigan so my question is when do you think you might be in Michigan?


May 3, 2019

Hey brotha I’m in the military currently stationed in Hawaii I was in San Diego a few weeks back and I figured I’d go see my first baseball game ever which was angels vs rangers and I caught Albert poujls first home fun of the season at my first game and all I could think was how cool it would be to tell you about how I used your tips to get it I got to meet mike trout and he signed some of my stuff and I got to have a full blown conversation with him and I went to 3 of the games I’ve been watching all of your videos and honestly man it would be an honor to get something signed by you one day if I got to meet you thank you so much for everything and god bless bro

May 1, 2019

Hi Zack,

This is Philip's mom, Alyssa. Philip told me I could reach out. Thanks so much for your kind exchange with him. Philip is a HUGE fan so this is really exciting.

We would love to plan a Watch With Zack to celebrate Philip's upcoming 12th birthday. We would want to go to Yankee Stadium. We can be flexible about the dates, though we are aiming for late August or sometime during September. Does that by chance work for you?

Would you mind sharing with me the relevant details such as pricing and what is included?

Philip's dad and I both appreciate and enjoy your videos and it was fun to meet you once at a game. We would come along with Philip. Philip's sister Penelope (13) would come too.

Thanks very much again and looking forward to hearing from you.

My best,
Alyssa


May 1, 2019

Hey Zack! I only recently stumbled across your channel and the storied mythos you carry in the baseball world after the Japan Series last month. I've now seen too many of your videos and consider myself a legitimate fan. I truly appreciate all that you do for baseball fans, young and old.

If you ever need anything at all the next time you're in Oakland or SF, please let me know and I'll do my best to help.

Keep up the great work.

-Drake


April 30, 2019

Zack,

A big congratulations on finally getting a bat from Mike, he is also my favorite active MLB player...I am so happppy for you! I hope to see you in Baltimore this year for the Angels series. I'm also going to see Guerrero Jr. at Camden in June...

Congratulations!
Sincerely, Clint


April 29, 2019

Dear Zack,

I apologize for filling your inbox, but I saw how many people have emailed you in the past expressing their appreciation for you, and I wanted to do the same. Also with all the ignorant comments in regards to those defending A-Rod, I hope this message makes your day a bit better.

I’m a pretty big fan. My mom and I went to the All-Star FanFest and I thought the chances of me seeing you were slim. Sure enough, I spotted you and even stopped by to take a picture. I doubt you remember, but I’m 100% sure I was the only Asian girl that approached you with a Mets cap, and Max Scherzer 2017 All-Star T-shirt.

We don’t hit as many parks as you do in a single season, but we just visited our 13th ballpark, Miller Park, over spring break. I thoroughly enjoy the content you post on your Youtube channel, and you’re the reason why I have an even greater appreciation for baseball. I think I obsess over it too much, in fact, to an extent that I made an additional Twitter account to rant on about any and all baseball related matters. I don’t plan on competing with anyone for BP homerun balls anytime soon, but maybe at some point I’ll see you around at a ballgame. After all, I only have 17 more to go!

Congrats on the Mike Trout signed bat!

Sincerely,
Paige


April 29, 2019

hey Zack my name is Aidan and I am a really big fan of yours. I am from Toronto and I have watched all of your videos on your youtube channel no kidding. I am going to Miami to go visit my aunt and cousin and we are going to see a marlins game against the mets. I am cheering for the mets but I was just wondering if you would like to come with me. We will also buy you a ticket. I also play for a competitive team in my city the North Toronto A’s. I would love to see you in person. I am also subscribed to your channel. I hope you get back to this email!

From: Aidan
p.s this is my moms email.


April 29, 2019

Hi Mr. Hample! I'm 11 and live in Hawaii. I am sending out an envelope soon, and I wanna get a ball signed. The only problem is that I'm 11 and cant go to the post office. I have included 10 dollars in Hope's of paying for shipping with that, along with a ball. I really wish I could, but I understand if you cant. I also included a picture of you and Mr. Trout, that I was hoping you could also sign! It would be a dream if you could sign both and get them back to me! I've been your biggest fan since I downloaded YouTube, and I always will be. Thanks so much! From, Micah


April 27, 2019

Hi Zack,
My name is Anthony and I just wanted to say thank you. You have inspired me to love baseball even more than I did before. I love going to Dodgers games even though I live in Pennsylvania. But when I can I do go to dodger games. My first ever baseball from a MLB game/player was from Austin Barnes in Washington, D.C. From that day on I’ve been trying to catch baseballs and go to every stadium in the US just like you. Thank you so much for everything!
Sincerely,
Anthony
P.S.: Will you be going to the Dodgers game in Pittsburgh on Memorial Day weekend and if you are I would love to meet you.


April 27, 2019

Hey Zack...

I just wanted to reach out to you to thank you for the impact you have made on me. I used to hate baseball, as I believed it was “boring” and “slow”. However, after coming across your videos sometime in 2016, I realized how much I wanted to go to batting practice. I caught my first ever ball last year (my first time going to BP) and I’ve been going to games ever since. Now, I’ve been to 4 MLB parks, I’ve obtained 14 baseballs, and my family now owns season tickets at Petco Park. I just wanted to express my appreciation for what you do and your influence on the many who have taken up this passion.

Thanks so much,
Jack V.

P.S. I would love to know when you will be at a Padres game this year :)


April 25, 2019

Hey Zack,

My kids, Xavier and Jayden are HUGE fans! I was wondering if I can purchase 2 autographed baseballs from you made out to each of my kids? They would be stoked! I can PayPal you the funds or mail a check. Just let me know what the price would be for 2 autographed baseballs and the shipping fee to Houston.

Kind Regards,
Daniel


April 25, 2019

Hey Zack, big fan, love your videos. I want to send you a ball I caught earlier this year for you to sign it. Im from Canada, and was wondering how this works - Can I send a self addressed box containing the ball, or do I need to included a second box for you to send it back in.

Thanks for your time, and enjoy the rest of the season!

-Tyler


April 24, 2019

Hi Zack my name is jake and I am 12 I love your videos I think you are one of the best YouTubers and I think your amazing Tue love be your apartment tour video I think it is amazing how you put magazine covers and I watched the video where you are in the pool at the baseball park but what I am trying to say is I am a fan so thank you for reading this or not but thanks


April 22, 2019

Hey zack I am a huge fan of your Channel and I was very excited to meet you last night at the Cleveland Indians game and would like to thank you for taking a picture with me. I was wondering if I you had a fan mail address that I could send a picture to you and if you could sign it, I will send a self addressed stamped envelope. Thanks again for taking a picture with me

-Ryan


April 22, 2019

Hey Zack,

My name is Ryan, and I am a 13 year old White Sox fan that watches almost every video that you post because I love what you do and it inspires me a lot. It is very impressive on what you accomplished throughout your history and I would like to tell you that you have done a great job and mean a lot to me.

Therefore, I would like to ask a quick question about an upcoming game. On May 18th, (MY BIRTHDAY), I am going to the White Sox game. I was wondering if you were thinking in advance and were going to this game. If not, no problem. I just wanted to know so I can plan on meeting such a good person there. If you already have other plans, don't worry about it at all. Here is a few details about the game if you are interested.

Date: Saturday, May 18th
Game: Toronto Blue Jays @ Chicago White Sox
Time: 1:10pm CDT
Field: Guaranteed Rate Field
City: Chicago, IL
Section: 102

Have a great day Zack and keep inspiring others and do what you do despite the haters because it is SO COOL and I wish I could be like you.

Have a great day!
Ryan


April 19, 2019

Hi Zack!!

I am a HUGE fan, and watched like every video that you ever made! I think that what you do is awesome, and I LOVE it!! I was wondering if you are going to be at the Mets Phillies game this Monday and Tuesday? It would be awesome to see you there! Also... do you sell your balls or baseball cards or anuthing, cause I would love to buy something! It would be sick to have something like that! Would I be able to send you something in the mail to sign for me? That would be so cool if possible! And by the way your new website is AWESOME!!! You're the GOAT! Let me know. Thanks!!!!!!

April 17, 2019

Hey Zack. I enjoy watching your videos as I’m a huge baseball fan and collector of baseball items. I am also one of the biggest sports memorabilia framers on the east coast. I watched your house tour and saw the signed arod Jersey. I wanted to reach out to you and offer you my services of framing it for you. I don’t want anything in return, just my way of saying thanks for the great videos and knowledge on being in the right spot at the right time. I’m in central New Jersey, so not to far away. If you are interested in having it framed feel free to reach out to me to set something up. Again thanks for the great YouTube videos. Take care. 
Jason 


April 17, 2019

Hi Zack,

I want to thank you because a couple of months ago, I emailed you asking for suggestions on where to sit in the Oakland Coliseum and you very nicely replied. The sections that you suggested paid off because I caught a Khris Davis foul ball (my first foul ball catch ever).  Once again I want to thank you and keep doing what you’re doing.

Thanks again,
Jack

Hey Zack I love watching your videos on YouTube and I am following you on instagram. And I always wanted to meet you a baseball game and ive got one of your books.

From one of your subcribers,
Elizabeth


April 12, 2019

Hey Zack-just wanted to say I thought you were some egotistical jerk who plowed over old people and children for baseballs-after watching your youtube vids I have to say you are one of the nicest people you will ever meet at a baseball game-Thx for being such a special individual to the game of baseball-how do I get a book? I'm a huge fan ( I'm in my 40s) of what you stand for and keep it up ma brutha!! best regards, David


April 11, 2019

Hi Zack, I’m Drew
I am a huge fan of you Zack. You have inspired me to go catch baseballs at games. I watch every single video. I was watching the game when you caught Bryce Harpers home run. I got the pleasure of meeting you last year at Progressive Field. I hope to see you again soon. My first post on instagram was you and me. I hope to become a ballhawk like you one day. Can you plssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss shout me out and tell me when you are going to Progressive again it would be amazing. I hope I meet you again.

Sincerely, Drew


April 11, 2019

Hey Zack,
I have been a huge fan since you first started uploading ballhawking videos back in 2012 and 2013, I was around 10 at the time. After watching your videos, I have actually gotten into watching games in person with a chance of catching a ball for myself. Seeing my first game with the knowledge of your videos, I would go home with my first baseball! My local team, the Triple A affiliate of the Los Angeles Angels, the Salt Lake Bees of the Pacific Coast League, had one policy, only season ticket holders had the ability of early access prior to the gates opening an hour before game time. Doing whatever it takes to see batting practice my dad and I have invested in season tickets ever since. I had hoped to contact you about making it to Salt Lake for game or two, and if my memory is correct, you replied to a comment of mine about the very same question, you would 'keep the offer in mind'. I would love to meet you in person, and would hope if you could make it around Salt Lake City sometime during the season.

Please see if you can make some time for a game in Utah, and we can hook you up with some BP action! Thank you so much for taking the time to read my message.

-Sam


April 9, 2019

Hello there Zack! My name is Eric and I love your enthusiasm for the greatest game on earth. I was wondering when you might be making to Detroit for a Tigers game? If you are ever in town it would be great to meet you and take you to a game. Keep up the awesome work!

Sincerely,
Eric


April 9, 2019

Thanks Zack I love your videos and you inspired me to just be a even better baseball fan. You may or may not have seen the saddest little cardinal video. Long story short it got deleted but there are still copies (the original was approaching 7 million views). But yah so. Your a great role model and I love your vids keep uploading and PLAY BALL.


April 9, 2019

Hi Zack, my name is Donovan and I am a big baseball fan. I have never got the oppertunity to go to a MLB game only college and Minor league. You are my favriote youtuber ever. May you please reply.

P.S. My favriote baseball player is Mike Tryout.

Sincerely,
Donovan


April 8, 2019

Hey!!! My name is Isaac and I'm 11 years old. I love watching your youtube videos. I love baseball and always amaze my friends at school because I know so much baseball stats. I love the Mets and live in Florida so I barely go to Met games. As a result, I go to a lot of Marlins games. ( I know. The marlins are bad) I just want to know if you are going to any Marlins games this season because I go to a lot of games and would love to meet you. Maybe I can even get some tips from you. I don't have a lot of experience and maybe you can help. I did catch a Jose Altuve foul ball in Spring Training and a Stanton home run in batting practice in Atlanta. I also have many autographs including Stanton, Noah Syndergard, David Wright, Brodie Van Wagenen. Those are among my great autographs but the best one would be from you. I get my autographs from Spring Training in Florida when the Mets come down. That's a tip for you. LOL!!!! I hope to speak to you and see you soon. It would be extremely nice if you can maybe email me back or maybe send me a little something like an autograph because you influence me to go to even more baseball games and catch baseballs. My address is [redacted]. Thanks!!!

From,
Isaac

April 8, 2019

Hey Zack I’m from Australia and I recantly watch a video and you had a Richmond footy club jersey on and I was was wondering if you have ever been to Australia or if you have watched an AFL game.

I would love to here back from you but you would be very productive so you probably won’t but I love your vids keep it up man. Lots of love Declan from Australia.


April 7, 2019

Hey Zack, I’m Mordy, a teen from Chicago, I really love all your videos. I’m subscribed and watch all of them. I’ve caught over 150 baseballs and I don’t think any of them would’ve happened without your inspiration. I recently checked out your new website and it’s awesome. Anyway I love snagging balls at wrigley, miller park, and guaranteed rate. I’ve always wanted to meet you and get a picture. If It’s not too much to ask, is it possible to tell me when you’re going to be at guaranteed rate this season?


April 7, 2019

I live in Boston, saw you at one game and you were the nicest man on earth! Hope to see you again!

-Brendan


April 7, 2019

My friend and I are huge fans of baseball and you. You are an amazing YouTuber and I hope your channel goes on forever. Thank you for not letting my friend and I be bored. Good luck this baseball season. Hope you catch a lot of baseballs this year. Amazing work!

Sincerely, Myles and Ty


April 7, 2019

Hi Zack,

I am a HUGE FAN! I was wondering 2 things: (a) when are you going to Oriole Park at Camden Yards and (b) are you going to the Orioles @ Twins game on April 27? I hope we can meet up at a game this year. I watch your youtube videos and love them! I am 10 years old and I am in 5th Grade.

Best of wishes,
Will Reuter


April 7, 2019

Hi Zack I just wanted to email you because I wanted to tell you I love your videos!! I especially love your Cleveland and Cincinnati videos. I would love to meet you. Keep up the good work. I’m planning on dressing up as you for Halloween, and I have 6 baseballs all at the age of 11/12

April 7, 2019

Hey Zack congrats on all of your success keep up all the great work from Owen


April 5, 2019

Hi Zack I am a HUGE fan of yours I watch all of your videos and they make my dad better every time I watch them now matter how bad of a mood I’m in my father and I are going to the braves vs the Phillies for the July 2nd 3rd and 4th game because I want to go back to my home town of Atlanta and I want to see my FAVORITE PLAYER Bryce Harper who him and I actually have the same birthday so I’m going to make a sign and try to get his attention and I figure why not email my favorite YouTuber so I did and I was wondering if you are going to attend any of those three games and if we could meet up please email me back,
Grayson


April 4, 2019

Hi Zack,

I just wanted to reach out and say thanks for keeping your awesome hobby alive. I am a huge fan of BP and watching players hit before games, I've only caught about 25 baseballs in my life but I'm still young and I'm hoping to keep it going. Regardless of what anyone says, I think its awesome that you keep the streak alive and do what makes you happy. I appreciate you giving baseballs away to kids because its a small but huge gesture for a kid to be apart of the action. Anyone who bashes the hobby just doesn't understand. The rush of catching a ball is unparalleled to almost anything else (I haven't had a lot of huge life milestones yet but cmon, Baseball is life). Hopefully I see you out one day at Miller Park (soon to be AmFam Field).

Thanks!
Nicholas


April 4, 2019

Hi zack I’m a new viewer and thought I would reach out and ask if you would be attending the sf-NYY series in sf on April 26-29. If you do could you please tell me a general area you would be at I’d like to meet. If I don’t hear back I understand. Have a good day and many blessing this year bud!

Best regards 
Billy


April 4, 2019

Hey Zack I’m a huge fan and would love to meet you. I’m from Cincinnati so I frequently attend Reds games and I was just wondering if you have anything planned in Cincinnati in the upcoming months. Also congrats on the Harper ball the other day! I look forward to hearing back from you.

Best Regards,
Matthew

April 3, 2019

Hey Zack! Will you be at the Mets game Saturday? I’m a really big fan and I was hoping to meet you!

-Luke


April 3, 2019

Hey man, I’ve been seeing all the negativity toward you lately, and I just want to say that all the “Bully” and “Taking away from kids” stuff is so unfair. There is no mention of all the balls you give away to kids, or the kindness you show with autographs and pictures. I can say first hand that you are the furthest from mean spirited! You make going to the ballpark so much better/fun for everyone who has crossed paths with you. Your YouTube content is entertaining and kid-friendly. How you’ve been labeled as a bad guy is beyond me. Keep doing your thing, man! Hopefully we see you again this year in Canada! Real fans know what’s up.

-Ty


April 2, 2019

Hi Zack; Im a huge fan of yours.I love the Phillies.Do you go to the minor league games like Reading ?I think your videos are so cool.I really like your baseball card that is the best thing ever.I wanted to ask if you could sign me a picture for me.I collect signed pictures so would like you for my collection please.Thanks for taking time to read my letter. 

Kevin

Ps-Take Care


April 2, 2019

Hey Zack My name is Raiden, I’m 14 years old and I’m going to the Twins Game tomorrow and its opening day too!  I wanted to get a picture and an autograph if possible, I’ve been watching your videos and loved them all.


March 27, 2019

Hi Zack, 
My name is Joseph. And I love all you baseball vids. I play baseball myself and have been playing for like 10 years. I hope I can go to a game with you. If you can my Instagram is [redacted]. If you could follow me and I can go to a game with you that would be awesome.


March 25, 2019

Hey man, just stumbled across your channel recently & wanted to say your doing great work. Your putting smiles on kids faces , raising money for a great cause & best of all your doing it all while doing what you love.....people hate not having the courage to live like that so dont take it personally lol ....have a great season #gosox

-Sean


March 25, 2019

Well Damn!

I just watched your Tokyo video and I am amazed about how much I miss your videos. I feel like this may be a dumb email, but I just appreciate what you’re doing for Youtube and MLB. We have exchanged emails before and you probably don’t remember me, but I would always like to meet you. I’m a big Red Sox fan and go to a fair amount of Red Sox games every year. If you do end up at Fenway this year, could you maybe put something that you’re going on one of your social media stories? I hope to meet up with you someday, and keep doing what you’re doing, I love what you’re doing for this world!! You have no idea how much you influence everyone in the baseball and Youtube communities. Thanks Zack for taking the time out of your busy life to look at this!!

Thanks,
Jack 


March 24, 2019

Hey Zack I would just like to say you are my role model and I love what you do! I have watched your videos for the longest time and hope one day I can meet you and talk in person and maybe even get an autograph. You are awesome and I play baseball and I don’t even think I’ve caught as many baseballs as you have😂 by the way let’s go Braves! They have got a good line up this year and I hope everything goes well. Once again you are awesome and you are the best person ever! I love your videos! Keep up the good work! If you want to message me back on something else my instagram is [redacted] and if you want to write a letter to me my address is [redacted]. Once again you are awesome and I love your videos and maybe one day I’ll get to meet you but thanks for reading this.

-Easton


March 22, 2019

Hey Zack,

Been watching your videos for years! Awesome stuff, man. Wanted to say Good luck this 2019 season! And also, will you have any new promo codes for SeatGeek this season?

Thanks! 
Joseph 


March 21, 2019

Dear Zack,

I just had to email you and say you are the smartest, inspirational, funniest and all around best ball hawk in the world! I have been a die hard Royals fan sense 2014, and by now I am in 6th grade and I am starting to appreciate more then just royals, I like baseball in general. I used to think of all the other teams as crap until I started watching your videos. You changed what baseball was for me. So thank you. But of course I am a busy kid so I still go to royals games but when I go I think differently, I just appreciate the guys on the field more then ever. I had a few more questions. I don’t know if you are this far out but, are you going to the royals game vs twins series over 4/2 and 4/3 because the 3rd is by birthday and that would make my day if I saw you there. It would be a very quiet game as it is a Wednesday and there are no tours. However there is no royals batting practice that fans can get into because of no early bird.

Thanks you for all that you do to influence baseball, ball hawking and me personally.

Thanks!
Ian

Hi Zack! I’m a fan from Indiana (still waiting for that MLB team). I have tons of favorite moments from you videos. I love every single one of them. I was wondering if you would ever come to an MiLB game in Indy. I know it’s a stretch, and I’m not asking you to come, but if you were to take up an Indians game, I would be very happy. The Indians provide the best food, cleanest stadium, and most amazing experience in the MiLB. If you are having trouble picking a date, I would recommend June 1st.  I don’t want to waste anymore of your time! You have videos to make and baseballs to catch!

From, Evan 


March 19, 2019

I’ve been watching since you had about 30k subs and I really enjoy your videos. I started ballhawking myself and caught my first game home run (hit by Giancarlo Stanton). You have gotten me more interesting in baseball. If I were to send you a copy of your book would you be able to sign it? I know you don’t know your schedule yet, but if you are in Cincinnati this year I would love to meet you. Thank you for making great videos.

-Nick


March 16, 2019

I know you possibly won't read this until after the Japan series between the Athletics and the Mariners, but I want you to know that you are not only the greatest YouTubers ever, but one of the greatest baseball YouTubers ever. Ballhawking is so cool, especially when you do the glove trick. It's impressive that it can do it. I live in the Phoenix, Arizona area and I am a die-hard Diamondbacks fan, as you can see. I have 4 baseballs already, but 3 of them aren't official MLB balls. One has the Rawlings logo, but it's a high school baseball that I found not too long ago and has a "Perfect Game" stamp.

The official ball is from the 20th anniversary of the Dbacks this past year. I was close to catching a home run that made it to the Dbacks bullpen on the 3rd base side of Chase Field once last season. My goal is to get to all 30 MLB stadiums as well too. I've seen Chase Field, Angel Stadium in passing, and Petco Park as well in passing. It's so cool that you are the record holder for Arkanoid. Keep up the good work on it. Here's to a great season, Zack!!

Hi Zack,

My family members are all avid followers of your YouTube channel. We're Lisa (my wife), Lennon (my son), and myself (Doug). We've met a few times on the road at various parks.

Winter has sucked here big time and we're bored and miss baseball so we've been doing re-runs of your YouTube channel vids to stay sane.

So we had a couple questions maybe for your next q/a vid.

- why don't you wear sunglasses at games? It'd be healthier for your eyes and if you a nice pair of polarized shades you might pick up the ball better (it's helped me).

- would you / have you considered featuring more vegan food in your ballpark vids?

- how did you adhere all of the magazine covers to your walls? Glue?

Anyways, keep up the good work please and thanks for the FUN. I mean that. You bring fun into our lives and it's appreciated.

Cheers,
Doug, Lisa, and Lennon

Hey Zack!

I’m a huge fan. I’m from Meridian, Mississippi and I was wondering if you ever go to college baseball games. My favorite college, Mississippi State University, just built a brand new park that’s probably nicer than some AAA parks. It’s got apartments in left field! Anyway, I’m wondering because it would be great if you found some time to come to a game down here. I know your schedule is packed, but I promise you won’t regret it! Keep up the good work!

Thanks,
Harris

Dear Zack,

through the thousands of emails you get everyday i doubt you will see this. but if you do thank you for taking time out of your busy day to do so. recently i’ve been in really bad spot and wanted to take my life away at only age 15. everything’s been really bad but i love baseball always have and always will. and i’m an old subscriber but when i’m down i turn on your videos new or old even if they have been watched before. no matter the video it always makes me smile and cheer me up for having you express your love for the game. thank you for being the best you tuber out there.

much love, ramsey

Me and my dad go to Globe Life Park and we live here in Dallas but originally we are from Puerto Rico and it was amazing when we saw your video when you went to Puerto Rico, I was wondering, now that the season is right around the corner, is there a possibility that you might travel this year to Dallas? I know is a personal question and all but if so, it would be nice to take a picture with you and say Hello, if you are coming, will you let me know?

Hi Zack,

I am a 16 year old from Pittsburgh and am a die-hard Pirates fan. I love baseball and played it all my life. I have been watching your videos for years and cannot believe that someone can have gotten 10,000 baseballs, including Trouts first home run, and A-Rods 3000 home run hit, along with a big bat collection.

I have been going to Pirates games for years (although I can never seem to get a ball) and I also love getting close to the players and getting in as early as I can for batting practice.

I’m just writing this to say how much of a fan I am of you, and I hope to finish high school well and go to college in Pittsburgh so I can spend my summers at PNC Park and get as many baseballs as I can too.

It would mean a lot if you would answer this email, or at least read it, but if not best of luck for the 2019 season!!!

Lets go bucs!!!

Hi Zack,
I LOVE your videos and sadly I’m not allowed to do a watch with Zack game but I was wondering if you could tell me your strategies of trying to catch a ball because I want one REALLY bad but I’v never got one. Also, when you go to different parts of the outfield do you need to buy extra tickets to try and catch balls there or do they just let you in? It would be really cool if a famous baseball caching superstar like you could email me in real life and not just my dreams (haha). It would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.
Your biggest fan,
Murray


March 10, 2019

I am inspired by you to catch for baseballs but I barely get any.I watch your videos everyday all day and I’m not going to stop watching.I am one of your #1 fans.I would love to meet u soon!Have a good rest of your day!

March 9, 2019

I was just wondering if you would happen to be in Pittsburgh 4/1, nationals 4/2, Baltimore 4/4, or philly 4/5? Reason i ask is i would love to set up a picture with you with my son and i. Im willing to pay a fee. Nothing special just a picture any time during the game if you happen to be at any of the above. If thats something you are interested in, let me know fee and what game. Thank you very much.

Hey Zack,

What's up? My name is Jacob and I am a senior in high school in Ohio, about an hour from Cincinnati. I met you at a Reds game back in June 2017 when the Dodgers came to Cincy and Pete Rose was inducted into the Reds Hall of Fame. My senior year is just about coming to an end, and I plan to attend college this fall. I have already been accepted, admitted, and offered direct admission into the School of Communication under the Journalism major at The Ohio State University. I want to become sportswriter and journalist.

As I stated, my senior year is almost done. My senior class will be taking our senior trip to New York City the weekend of March 21-24. We will be seeing the Statue of Liberty, the 9/11 Memorial, the Empire State Building, and Times Square among other places throughout the weekend. Our class will be divided up into groups of about ten people, and in my group, there are several varsity baseball players, including me! We watch your videos and attend Cincinnati Reds and Dayton Dragons baseball games quite frequently, and I thought it would be a wonderful opportunity if we had the chance to meet you. If you have any interest or free time at any point March 22, 23, or 24, we would love to meet you in your home city of New York.

I do understand that your schedule is intense, and you just may be returning from Japan, as Seattle and Oakland open the season just around that time, so meeting you in NYC just may not be able to happen. However, I would love if I could receive some advice about the city of New York. I have never been to "the city that never sleeps," so as a student tourist and someone who aspires to become a sportswriter, could you provide me with some of your favorite spots in the city? We are scheduled to have some time to explore the city within my group, and I am wondering if there are any sports organizations that have buildings accessible to the public, like MLB headquarters and Topps headquarters. Are there any food places you recommend? Are there any sites that you believe a young writer should know of and visit in New York City, like the New York Times building or any other news media chain? Any information would be greatly, greatly appreciated. I look forward to making a life memory in a few weeks, and I would love to make the most of it.

Good luck this season on chasing more baseballs for your collection! I am looking forward to watching more of your videos and seeing what you explore. I just checked the signed ball you signed for me in Cincinnati, and I met you back when you were at 9,793 baseballs. Absolutely astounding.

Thank you very much!

-Jacob


March 6, 2019

Hey Zack! Thanks soooooooo much for the awesome videos. I have a question: What is the best food to get at Fenway park? I'm going their in July so I just wanted to know what to eat there. Thanks Zack, keep being awesome.

From, Ben


March 5, 2019

Dear Zack,

My son Ben is a big fan of yours and we both follow you on twitter. Ben bought your book and we've seen you twice, once at Camden Yards and the other at Yankee stadium. He has used some of your techniques from the book to get baseballs from players including wearing an Orioles jersey to get a toss-up from Jonathon Schoop in Yankee Stadium. He is being Bar Mitzvahed at the end of March and would be very appreciative if you could send a quick video greeting to him to use in the montage, nothing fancy, just a shout out on his big day sent back to this email address, to surprise and delight him. In advance, thank you for your time, as I know you're very busy.

Regards,
Russ

Hello there, 

I was curious if you would sell one of the 100 year balls for Fenway Park. I am deploying to Afghanistan in 5 days and would love to have it with me and then give it to my daughter once I get back. Keep posting vids and I will watch you increase your numbers. Maybe once I get back next March if you are ever in Texas I would love to meet up. Thanks Brian 


March 1, 2019

Greetings Zack,

I’ve been following you for about 3 years, it was the off-season after the Royals won the World Series when I was watching videos of fans catching foul balls. I then saw a documentary on the 3,000 hit by A-Rod. I proceeded to look you up and after that I was hooked. The following season I started going to a bunch of games. I then decided last year to go to every major league stadium, my brother also is doing this. We went to an ALCS in Boston (we are from Illinois), and I snagged my first ball after 26 games. I recently booked a flight with my entire family to go to Oakland and San Francisco. You’ve in a weird way united us through baseball.

Thanks for encouraging me to go to the ball park,
Erick

Hello Zack! I love your videos. I’m a big fan! My family has a 20 game package to Progressive field and I was wondering when you are going to Cleveland? I would love to meet you sometime!

Your friend

PS (I have a YouTube channel! It would mean a lot if you liked and subscribed!)


February 25, 2019

Hey Zack, I am going to a game at yankee stadium on March 31 and wanted to maybe get a picture or an autograph. I love your videos and watch your YouTube channel. Thanks man.

Also, can I get a shoutout in your next vid my names Matthew.


February 24, 2019

Hi zack I am a big fan of yours and I watch all your videos you have inspired me to go and catch baseballs at games I am 11 and I am a big Detroit tigers fan I am interested in doing a watch with zack game with you and I have gone to your website and read everything and I would love to meet you

Thank you


February 21, 2019

February 21, 2019

Zack. Greetings from Hamburg Germany! I found your Channel a couple of months ago and I Love it! Why? Well, let me Start in the nineties. I grew up watching all the Baseball movies in TV when I was Young. Sandlot, Field of Dreams, Major League etc. and just loved the movies and the game. But I lost touch with the Sport after a Few years, because it is not a very popular Sport Here in Germany and it was hard to follow without Internet in the late 90s/early 00's.

BUT

I got in touch with baseball again. Thanks to you and your Channel. Keep up the good Work, man.

Greetings from Hamburg, Germany.

-Daniel


February 19, 2019

Zack,

Let me begin by telling you how much of a fan of yours I am. I watch all of the videos that you put out religiously and have opened my own catalog of baseballs that I have accumulated.

Of course, I am sure that you get many of these, so I will be succinct with my questions:

Do you know which teams/events have commemorative balls for 2019? I am trying to get at least one this season. Do the Rangers for the last season at Globe Life Park? Do the Padres for 50 seasons in San Diego?

Thanks so much,

A very grateful Robert M.

Dear Zack, my name is Aidan and I am a huge fan of you and your videos. I have watched your videos since August of 2016 and enjoy every one of them. I am 16 years old, a big Boston Red Sox fan but I live in New Jersey (wierd, I know). From you and watching your videos and your enthusiasm about baseball, you have made me much more interested in baseball than I was before I started watching your videos. You have also made me much more excited to go to games and catch balls ever since I started watching your videos. I love your passion and how dedicated you are to watching baseball by attending so many games and travelling all over to make videos on catching baseballs for your YouTube channel. You have also motivated me to want to visit more stadiums. I have been to 17 so far and I want to get to all 30 someday. I love your videos so much and I have watched most of your videos so many times that I can't even count on my fingers how many of times and I'm memorizing your narrations in the videos (including your non-stadium videos). (I think I probably know more about the content in all of your videos than you lol). I was even in two of you Q&A videos (part 5 and part 11) and really appreciate that you picked my questions to answer. (Not sure if you recognize my name from commenting on your videos, but if you don't I hope you remember me from this email). I really hope to meet you someday (preferably this season). You really have inspired me and you are my idol. It would mean a lot to me if you read this and could write back to me. Thank you for inspiring me and for the great content on your YouTube channel. Keep it up!

From a huge fan of you, Aidan


February 17, 2019

Hi, Zack

I hope your doing well, I have commented on a few of your videos in the past which you have kindly replied to the last being the South Africa trip with your family. However I wanted to send you a e-mail to say that for the past three years I had been suffering from depression & anxiety which had gotten better with councilling & medication. however my anxiety has gotten worse for the last year but what helps is watching your videos along with other vlogs about other interests of mine. so I just wanted to say thankyou for helping me through your videos even though I’m thousand of miles away in London, England. I love Baseball (I’m a RedSox fan) & having been to Fenway for the first time last year there is no other sporting venue that I’ve been to in the world quite like it. Anyway again thankyou so much for your help to me & all the best.

Hi Zack,

My daughter and I really enjoy your YouTube channel.  To be honest, before watching even one video, or subscribing, my first reaction was to wonder how entertaining could it really be.  To my pleasant surprise, I was proved wrong.

Your channel inspired my daughter-who you met in Detroit last season, and, also featured her comment on your first installment of ticket stub signatures video-to start her own channel.  She is trying to do something similar to you, but instead she’s trying to collect game used gear, and autographs (but mainly game used gear).  As soon as we get her channel monetized, she would like to donate a portion of the monies to dementia charities researching for a cure.

Do you have any advice for her that would help in her quest to gain subscribers, popularity, and exposure for her channel? Thank you for your time.

P.S. I’ve begun the process of setting up an interview with West Michigan Whitecaps manager, and former Detroit Tigers catcher Lance Parrish this summer, so that Erynn can have additional content on her page.

-Chris


February 14, 2019

Hey Zack,

I’m a huge fan of yours and I love watching your videos. Hope this email finds you well, as I am sure you’re gearing up for the start of the season.

I was wondering if you’ve ever done the two stadiums in one day in Chicago? Looks like the Cubs and Sox are both playing at home May 4-5 and Aug 23-24. Both parks are right off the red line in Chicago.

Anyways, I would love a chance to meet you when you come to Chicago this year. I’m not sure if you typically announce where you’re going to be, but if you know of a certain date already, I’d love to try and make that game.

Thanks for the time and I’m looking forward to catching your videos this season.

Thank you,
Zach M

Hey, Zack!

My name is Preston but I go by Fuzzy on YouTube. I’ve been a huge fan of yours for years and always looked up to you when I first started my channel. If you’re at Goodyear from the 23-25 of February, I would love to get you in one of my videos or buy you a beer for being a motivating factor behind me getting 60,000 subscribers. Thanks in advance if you do see this!

Regards,
Preston aka Fuzzy


February 11, 2019

Hey Zack!

Well, it happened.  My 9 year old loves baseball more than me.  Part of the reason?  Your videos.

Thank you so much for sharing your love and passion for the game.

We would love to meet you for a quick picture, if it's not too much trouble.

Any idea when/if you'll be in LA this season?

Thanks a bunch,
Bill


January 29, 2019

Hi Zack - 

My son Henry and I are big fans of you and your videos. We caught four balls at last years' Cubs/Rockies Wild Card game, and six a week before at a game in Cincinnati!

Question - do you have a PO Box? I'd love to send you a business card for your collection!

Thanks, and keep up the good work,

Zack,

I'm just getting back into baseball after being out if it for about 10 years, my favorite players all retired and life got busy.

I have been doing some research on the game and came across your videos, I really like what you do.

My background in the (Army) military was photography and videography.  Im currently working as a Audio Visual Engineer.

I plan to see Mike Trout play at Baltimore in May (2019) during the 3 game set, I was just curious if you might be in Baltimore it would be nice to meet.  I live in Northern Virginia BTW.

I really like your channel and I didn't realize there were others who were as crazy about the sport as I am.

Take care and drop me a quick email.

V/R

Zack,
I just watched you on Bryant Gumble’s Real Sports.
Here’s my thoughts:
Awesome dude!  Good for you!  You are doing what you love and that’s the best thing in life…keep the passion.  Don't let people get you down, there is enough real stuff in this world to make us all bummed out that your stuff doesn't even touch the real bummer issues within this world.
I have an answer for you when asked about the poor people who you are “stealing” an opportunity from.
Do the math.  How many foul balls and home runs, throw outs etc…on average occur in a given game?  I’ll guess 20-25 between practices and then the game.  You come away with 2 or 3 of them…right.  But let’s remember all the other games that are going on all over the country!  I’ll be that you represent less than 1/10th of 1% of balls received by fans.  Figure that statistic out as accurately as you can and don’t exaggerate it…be conservative.  Remind people that you are only at one given game at a time!  People are so small to get upset about this.  They should enjoy the uniqueness you represent and the effort you go to, to chase your passion and dream.  They are just jealous or naysayers and in the minority I would guess.  The guy that said you are stealing other people’s experience, what a bunch of junk.  I have never caught a foul ball and frankly my life is whole and meaningful.  If I catch one, then great but it hasn’t taken away from me and my existence on earth!
Keep doing what you do but let me add some thoughts here:
Turn this attitude that people have into something positive that they cannot deny.  This is the important part…give back.  Find a way to give back to the community.  I heard them briefly state that you have given balls to young people at the park.  Continue to give as you are a lucky and fortunate dude!  Maybe shoot for sponsorship and that for every  ball you get, a certain amount of money is given to the cancer society or any society you feel needs help.  Go visit children in Ronald McDonald houses throughout the United States and dedicate a catch to those visited.
Keep doing what you do because I am pretty certain that most of us like to see how you excel at what you do and get a kick out of what you do.  We all wish we had that passion.  You are not a freak or anything…you’re just brave enough to chase your passion like very few actually do.  Find a way to channel what you do into a giving experience as well as your meaning for it all.  I think you said that the thrill is when the ball is hit until the ball lands in your mit!  Right?  So maybe you state that after number 10,000, that you are going to give each and every ball away to fans of your choice and find the fan least likely to be able to catch a ball.  An old timer that used that has been a long time ball fan, the area where the handicapped sit, etc., so many opportunities.  Giving is the way to really be able to truly receive.
Lastly, at an Angels game against Baltimore, I had really good seats just behind home plate.  Cal Ripken was on deck and I decided to get closer to him to show my 5 year old son whose kindergarten teacher loved Cal Ripken...a big fan.  So up from our seats and to the front wall to take a closer peak at the man.  As Cal was swinging his bat, Cal looked up at me and my son, signaled to me to hang tight, dropped his bat and slowly walked back to the dug out.  Yep, he walked back flipping a brand new ball up and down in his right hand as he walked back, and when he got back to deck, he walked up to me and said, “this is for your son”.  OK, I have to tell you, at some level, I know what you are experiencing.  It was a thrill!  What I didn’t notice was that the batter at plate had struck out while he was getting me the ball and the whole park was wondering what the heck was going on!  When all the fans saw Cal give me a ball, everyone stated applauding him and cheering.  The umpire just looked in disbelief and then finally yelled “play ball"…too classic.  Cal is some ways must know on a micro level how much that affected me and my son but for me and my son, it was macro and for all the fans around that were patting me on the shoulders, it was their experience as well.
Zack, keep doing what you do dude.  Change is good and maybe now is a time for you to bring the fans in with you.  Figure it out and share in the joy, with the fans that you no doubt love so much too.
Take care,
Chris


January 3, 2019

Just came across your channel on youtube.  I follow u on facebook and on your site.  I am going to a few games here in Cincinnati.  I am a huge Reds fan.  I grew up there.  I know u get alot of requests but you coming to Cincinnati this year?  I am into autographs. Would love to have your autograph.
