MLB's most notorious ballhawk issues apology for attending Fort Bragg game

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Zack Hample has caught thousands of baseballs at MLB games over the course of his lifetime, and he's even written a book about the practice. Hample is not, however, a member of the United States military, so many fans were upset when Hample found a way into MLB's first-ever game at Fort Bragg, which was intended to be closed to the general public. When Hample tweeted a photo of a baseball thrown to him by Martin Prado, the 82nd Airborne Division ripped him on Twitter for taking a seat that could have been filled by a member of the military.

On Monday, Hample explained how to managed to get a ticket to the game - he went to extreme lengths, and created a "platonic Tinder bio" to try and find people who could get him in - and wrote that he was "truly sorry for attending the game."
