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.

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.
