Baseball collector crushed on Twitter for crashing Fort Bragg game

It looks like someone crashed the Marlins-Braves game at Fort Bragg on Sunday night, and it’s causing quite the uproar. Self-proclaimed baseball collector Zack Hample tweeted an image of a baseball he obtained during the special event, sparking a significant amount of criticism on Twitter.

Hample, who claims to have been to 51 different MLB stadiums and caught A-Rod’s 3,000th hit, apparently was offering $1,000 to anyone on the U.S. Army post to bring him to the game as a guest. The game was closed to the general public, only to be attended by Department of Defense employees and their family.

Once word spread of Hample’s tweet, the criticism came quickly. The 82nd Airborne Division’s Twitter account had some advice for the baseball collector.

Others in the baseball community took aim at Hample, even the notorious Marlins fan who has a penchant for showing up to sporting events in the hopes of being seen.

It looks like Hample had been planning to attend this game for a few weeks.

Hample tried to defuse the situation, claiming to have given away almost all the balls he collected at the game.

But that attempt appears to have done little for his reputation.
