Did Ballhound Zack Hample Muscle Out a Kid For a Souvenir?

Ball-collector Zack Hample doesn't like paying $23 for a Mets ticket. But, he did like getting 21 Rawlings orbs on Friday. [Snagging Baseballs]

Tipster DJ6 doesn't like Hample. But, he does like sharing the fact that Hample clearly blocks out a child for No. 21.

To me it is obvious that the kid was likely who the ball was going to.

You be the judge...

Did Ballhound Zack Hample Muscle Out a Kid For a Souvenir?

After the game (which the Braves won, 6-4), I got a ball from home plate umpire Bill Hohn as he walked off the field. It was my 21st and final ball of the day. Here's a screen shot from a video that shows the ball sailing toward me.

Good work, Zack!
