“Ballhawks give back by collecting baseballs”

I’m sure by now-if you’ve been keeping up with me on my blogs-you’d know that I’m a professional Ballhawk. Nearly six years ago, I snagged my first baseball at Kauffman Stadium with the help of an usher during my mid-tour leave from combat in Iraq. Since then, I’ve progressively snagged more and more baseballs each year.

Last week I was contacted by Meggie Zahneis, a youth reporter for Major League Baseball, and was invited to participate in an interview about Ballhawking. It was a lot of fun to answer some of the questions and sort of explain the idea behind Ballhawking.

    Hi Wayne. I am from Oregon and rarely get to go to MLB games because we obviously dont have a team, but on occasion I do go to a Mariner Game. In July im going to a night game against the Orioles. Can you give me any tips on how to snag balls at Safeco Field. Thanks- feel free to email back .Cal

      Kauffman Stadium has an “early bird” tour for an addition ten dollars. Get there early enough for that and you’re set to snag at least one baseball.
