    Fan petitions MLB to Ban Ballhawk Zack Hample From All Ballparks

    Baseball collector/ballhawk Zack Hample is not a person you want to see at your favorite team’s ballpark. On Sunday, the Braves-Marlins game at Fort Bragg was supposed to be for military personnel and their families only, and yet, extremely disliked ballhawk Zack Hample was in attendance.  He even posted about it many times on Twitter.

    It appears as though baseball brawls with actual punches are becoming trendy once again. About a month ago, we saw the Rangers’ Rougned Odor sock the Blue Jays’ Jose Bautista in the face with a mean right hook.  And last night, during a game between the Orioles and the Royals, it was Manny Machado charging the […]
