FOXNEWS.COM - 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. pic.twitter.com/OQoGJfExbR— Zack Hample (@zack_hample) July 4, 2016
I just snagged a baseball at my 52nd MLB stadium. So excited to be here at Fort Bragg! pic.twitter.com/xT46d6jhIO— Zack Hample (@zack_hample) July 3, 2016
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.
