Zack Hample is my idol! He should be your idol too!

As I was writing a post about Mike Trout's most memorable games, I Googled "Mike Trout First Career Homerun" and found a story about a guy named Zack Hample. Hample has spent almost a quarter of a century traveling the country and catching baseballs at MLB parks. He has caught over 7,400 baseballs in 50 stadiums. On July 24, 2011, Hample was in the outfield seats at Camden Yards when Trout hit his first homerun over the left-centerfield wall. After the game, Hample was able to meet up with Trout and personally hand him the ball. Now some people might say that he's crazy. I say he's a genius. In fact, I'm adopting him as my new idol. SO SHOULD YOU! Here's why.
