    He seems to have fun with it and wasn't a jerk about giving Blandino the ball. I say good for him. Everyone needs a hobby.
    The world is a messy place. People are inconsistent and complicated. Maybe we should see how different things could be if we gave grace and forgiveness to our fellow human beings when they fail to be perfect in our eyes. -- me

    Hopefully Blandino is more Trout and Didi than Mike Nickeas (who?).

    We can do that? I wasn't aware we had that much power.

    The Stanford Cardinals will not be happy that you are writing that about any other college team.

    The GAB has to be the best place in the majors for a ballhawk. Lots of HR, not that many fans.
    Friends don't let friends fWAR.

    Re: Let's ban Zack Hample from GABP

    The main problem I have with it, is that for every ball he gets, he's taking one from another fan.
    Most collectors or hobbies that people have are self beneficial and have no effect on others.
    Catching a baseball at a game is a unique experience and something that may or may not happen in a fan's lifetime.
    That's 9,000 fans that his hobby has taken away from, and potentially young fans that would be worth more to a child or someone who is just getting into the game.

    I know when I have been to ballparks that ushers don't always let me switch seats, and certainly frown upon jumping over seats for safety and respect reasons. I don't think he's doing anything that deserves a ban, but would suggest there are rules in place that prevent him from being able to manipulate the ability to move around the park and strategically take away the experience from people that have legitimately paid to be in a certain section of the park.

    I'm an advocate of banning this man-boy from life. Is that an option?

    When there are 30 people in an entire section, the ushers shouldn't be getting on people about moving around seats. That stuff drives me crazy.

    I was at a minor league game in the last few years (I'm going to be very vague here because I don't want to throw any particular organization under the bus) and saw an usher go down and check on tickets of these two young men (they looked like they were somewhere in that 18-25 range). They didn't have tickets for those seats. He asked them to move. They were literally the only people sitting in the first 13 rows of that section. There were about 8 total people in the section. Stuff like that is incredibly petty.

    Here's another fun one. My best friend a few years ago bought seats in Baltimore behind the plate. Second row. Seats that cost like $200. He was literally the only person in his row. He scooted over one seat after like 3 innings so he would be seen on TV (his seat was right out of frame). The usher came down and threatened to have him removed from the ballpark if he didn't move back to his original seat. You know, the one right next to it. NO ONE ELSE WAS IN THE ROW.

    Just drives me crazy when people do stuff like that.

    Side rant, of course. Hample is a different story. I just wanted to rant about ushers being turds.

    I wasn't sure, so I checked Ohio law. It turns out that murder is indeed illegal.
