Meeting a hero

by Tom Schoenfelder

Before working at Pitch In For Baseball, I never thought I’d get the opportunity to meet some of my idols growing up.  My first week on the job I was told I needed to call Zack Hample, ballhawk of all ballhawks and awesome author.  I remember as a twelve year old boy reading his book entitled How to Snag Major League Baseballs.  During that phone call I realized Zack was a normal guy…a normal guy that’s snagged 5,819 baseballs at Major League ballgames.

This past summer I had the pleasure of meeting Zack, along with his family, during a visit to our warehouse in Pennsylvania.  I was asked if I didn’t mind being on camera for a Korean documentary.  Of course I didn’t shy away from the limelight and relished the opportunity to have my 15 mins of fame in far away land.  Here is what ensued…

Zack is a unique person and the best at what he does.  If you do not already follow Zacks blog you are missing out.

Oh yeah, baby! I mean . . . thanks for the kind words, Tom. It was great meeting you, and I’m looking forward to many more good times down the road.
