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.

Fort Bragg commemorative baseballs? Oh yes! Martin Prado just tossed this to me after the 3rd inning.

I just snagged a baseball at my 52nd MLB stadium. So excited to be here at Fort Bragg!

More from FoxSports

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.

.@zack_hample then why did you do this?

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.

Delete your account.

And this is the real issue.

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.

@zack_hample Zack, that game CLOSED to NON department of Defense Employees and their family. Give any balls u have to kids and leave. NOW.

Looks like @zack_hample could learn a thing or two here.

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

My phone is blowing up. @MLB to play a regular season game at Fort Bragg?! Wow. You can bet your ass I'll be there -- stadium No. 52 for me.

@bradrayborn363 I'm not making any plans that weekend in case I find a way to attend the game at Fort Bragg.

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

I got 11 balls today and gave 10 away. As promised, I'll be writing an $1,100 check to Please everyone, calm down.

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