Comments from Youtube

Lord Aizen : MLB cares about fans a lot they are all about fans unlike NFL NBA

Highlight Central : Met him at Yankees stadium seems like a pretty good guy

MarThewLander 79 : I used to hate Zack but now that I had started watching his videos I really respect him

reelkena : It's very reasonable to get 10000 balls considering he's had Hample opportunity...

Wild Card Placement : I caught Austin hays’ first home run ball at Yankee stadium last weekend. I got to meet him. He was so thankful that I gave him the ball back.

ATalkingBadger : Thank you MLB for the great video. I am very impressed with you making this very nice mini-documentary on the greatest MLB super-fan and ballhawk out there. Congrats to Zack Hample on 10,000 baseballs! Let's hope for MANY more to come.

Jeff Roberts : To hate this guy is crazy. Watch his videos you will realize how down to earth he is

Barry Jowers : Why do so many people hate on this guy? He has a passion for something and he lives his life for that passion. We should all be as lucky.

Isaac Ruiz : He should be in Cooperstown for his snagged baseballs

Cox Content : Lavar Ball got 100,000

Michelle Littell : Zack got 10,000 now you gotta get a billion

Fahad Alghamdi : He is one of the biggest reasons that made me a big baseball fan. The only baseball fan in Saudi Arabia

PuRe Zyme : MLB: We ran out of balls, can we borrow some? Zach: Sure why not!

Josh Turner : I love his Youtube Videos! Like if you agree!

Max Mononen : 10 000, that man is an absolute beast. I salute you sir with my one game experience of baseball, lifetime total of a solid zero. Still love it, greetings from overseas!

JugHead Jones : #Savedodgerfilms

Justyn Delbridge : Congrats on 10,000 Zack!

Random Person : It's amazing how many people say he is greedy if you do check his channel he gives most of his balls to kids HOW THE HELL IS HE GREEDY

Donkey Kong : I got to meet him 2 weeks ago at Suntrust Park. He is a super nice guy. Glad I got the chance to meet him.

Jorge Rodriguez : For the sports media haters in the video. You're jealous, plus you're making a living on what other people do. I don't feel sorry for you. Great video MLB. Thanks !

t904med : Baseball is an amazing game! As a fan no other game can offer what baseball offers. You can get closer to the players, talk to them, get autographs, take pictures, play catch in some cases, and if a ball comes at you, you get to keep it. Like Zack said it can feel as if you're part of the game. Anybody can go to the team store and buy a baseball, but to catch one or have a major league baseball player hit one or throw one to you is special. No other sport will ever come close!

Eric Selvig : I wonder if Zack was amazed when Kershaw recognized him

Baseball Headquarters : They need to do this with Dodgerfilms instead of telling him to not record at Dodger stadium.

Brian Baren : You rock Zack! Congrats on 10,000 man. Thats so many baseballs.

Seanx WhoDey : Zack, you are my inspiration in baseball!⚾⚾⚾⚾

Eli Allen : To all the people saying he is good and cool look up stuff about him not giving up Alex Rodriguez's ball

DFDalton1962 : Congratulations to Zack on 10,000. I'm a little disappointed by his somewhat crass "Watch with Zack" concept he started this season to take advantage of his fame, where he charges people $1000 plus travel expenses and game tickets for him and his cameraman to appear in a video with him. (The results are frequently cringe worthy. It has a sort of sad and awkward "buy a friend for a day" feel to it.) But he also gives to charity, gives away a lot of his caught balls to kids during the games, is friendly and enthusiastic with fans and players, and has a genuine passion for the game. He was a ballplayer himself who didn't quite have the talent to make it into the big leagues (no shame in that, 99.999999% of us couldn't either) and has still found a way to use his skills and be involved in the periphery. I only wish I could muster as much passion and enthusiasm for *anything*.

amaury joel : Boy, that first homer ball from Mike Trout is going to be worth thousands or even millions in some years.

Matthew Carley : This make me mad he is like dodger films but they let him film but not bobby

Grandpa 44 : People dislike him because there jealous

Jelly Productions : Zack Hample featured on MLB channels, finally

Help Me : He needs to be in the hall of fame just for that

Adrian Hernandez : This guy inspires me and I don't even watch baseball ⚾️

Nathan Chlysta : I'm still not a fan of how he handled the A-Rod thing (and im a red sox fan) but he seems like an alright guy.

Jim Bertido : The guys who sit around & talk about sports are making fun of a fan? FoH, at least getting the ball requires effort & skill. Anyone can sit around & talk about sports.

Sean Cauffiel : If you buy a ticket to watch the game, or if you are a player, you can experience baseball and still get to have sxe. :-D

Craig Bean : I saw him at citi field he caught a couple

O'Rangers Glory : Zack Hample vs. The Universe!!!

Michael Pagone : He's my 2nd cousin hey zack
