BIGS® Sunflower Seeds has teamed up with bestselling author and record-setting baseball collector Zack Hample to help him set an incredible record during the 2013 baseball season and raise money for his favorite charity, Pitch In For Baseball.
Here’s Zack’s challenge:
SNAG A GAME-USED BASEBALL AT ALL 30 BIG LEAGUE STADIUMS IN 2013.
What counts as a “game-used baseball”?
- Foul balls
- Home Run balls
- Balls that were put in play and tossed into the seats by a player or coach (think of a 1st baseman tossing the third out of the inning up into the seats)
What doesn’t count as a “game-used baseball”?
- Batting practice balls
- Balls used during other pre-game warm-ups
To add to the challenge, Zack must also be the first fan to snag the ball when it comes out of play. We’re not allowing him to get baseballs from other people – and that’s not his style anyway.
