You'd think Zack Hample would be satisfied with catching a Didi Gregorius home run ball in the third inning of the Yanks' bout against the D-backs Thursday -- but he still managed to snag Francisco Cervelli's tying homer in the bottom of the ninth. Hample took to Twitter to share the good news:
So, yeah, I snagged Didi Gregorius's 1st MLB homer tonight at Yankee Stadium. Gonna meet him after the game: twitter.com/zack_hample/st…- Zack Hample (@zack_hample) April 19, 2013
Yep, that was me catching Francisco Cervelli's home run in the bottom of the 9th. Two homers for me tonight!! twitter.com/zack_hample/st…- Zack Hample (@zack_hample) April 19, 2013
Not a bad night for the seasoned ball hawk, who's caught more than 6,000 balls at Major League ballparks since 1990.
