For those who don’t know, this is Zack Hample. He has paved a career out of catching every important foul ball on home soil. I don’t understand how he does it but he puts himself perfectly on every field. Not many people can stand him because he takes the ball from the kids like the picture above, he makes people do his best to catch the ball, and finally people find him strange. I started to respect him because it was a strange hobby that turned him into a talent and he would get every ball.
Aaron Judge is on the verge of beating a record no one else has come close to (without steroids) and decides to go on a planned vacation. source –
“I’m actually in Southern California right now,” Humble told The Post on Wednesday afternoon. “I’ve booked this trip for a while, in my quest to go to all 30 stadiums this year. I thought about canceling it, until the last minute. Kind of a wish I had, based on the judge hitting #60 while I was going and also where that ball fell. He fell This is near one of the few spots I regularly play on the field, so that’s very frustrating.”
This is the saddest shit of all time. Who do you want kids to look at Zack? All they know is the bad ball guy and when Aaron Judge hit the number 60, the 3-year-old turned to me and said Where’s Zack, he always sat in those seats. This is history, your life is catching these balls, how do you still go on vacation? I respected this guy and his work but now it’s totally over because the sun tan has become more important to him than catching the historic ball on his turf.
If I beat Judge in a home run tonight, I’m going to go into the game and catch the ball and they’ll never get it from me. I’ll make sure I get that ball and shove it in Zach’s face. I’m almost dazed writing the rest of this blog because I don’t know what I can believe anymore. I thought it would kill him to see these college kids get that ball, but I don’t think so. Next time you see me, I’ll have Aaron Judges number 62, not Zach Humble.
