Baseball Fan Has Caught 5,800 Balls in the Stands

Zach Hample is a ballhawk: someone who tries to catch baseballs hit or thrown out into the stands.

But that doesn't say enough. Zach Hample is the ultimate, professional ballhawk. He's caught more than 5,800 of them because he studies the layout of ballparks, the stand-throwing habits of particular players, and ways of presenting himself so that players will find him appealing. Hample is a master of his craft, and he's passed on his knowledge by writing a book to enlighten those who wish to become effective ballhawks.
