  • what's up everybody this is Zack handle
  • back and great American Ballpark in
  • Cincinnati for the second straight day
  • and man if you didn't see the video that
  • I filmed here yesterday what are you
  • doing
  • that was my 15 hundredths consecutive
  • game with at least one baseball
  • I got Ronald a Cunha Junior to sign a
  • ball which I'm giving away so much other
  • stuff happened I got 17 balls yesterday
  • hoping for a ton more action today
  • George's whether both teams should be
  • taking batting practice going to try to
  • catch a home run during the game that's
  • usually the goal have a few other things
  • in the works so let's get to it
  • [Music]
  • all right so I just got two of the
  • luckiest ricochets of all time
  • back-to-back on home runs by the Reds I
  • love it when that happens
  • I'm completely out of breath and I'm not
  • complaining I love it free exercise baby
  • so five baseball's today I got one right
  • away just like yesterday the so-called
  • Easter Egg sitting in the front row for
  • me I'll actually show you later in this
  • video maybe when there's a break in the
  • action exactly where that baseball today
  • was tucked kind of in a little hidden
  • spot so man the Reds are really putting
  • on a good show double digits while I'm
  • halfway there
  • [Applause]
  • [Music]
  • [Music]
  • got it yeah baby thank you you get the
  • assist on that one
  • that guy was nice enough to leave the
  • baseball on the warning track for me I
  • was fumbling around with it for a bit so
  • that is eight baseball's and the Reds
  • are still hitting I am definitely
  • getting double digits today for the
  • second day in a row thank you
  • [Applause]
  • another great day of batting practice
  • from the Reds hitting baseball's all
  • over the place being super friendly
  • tossing up lots of baseballs glove trick
  • opportunities as well and there was a
  • really fun moment one of the coaches on
  • the Reds was interacting with the fans a
  • bit being friendly and I called out to
  • him and said hey coach why don't you hit
  • a fun go to the last row of the
  • bleachers and watch us all race for it
  • and he said you know what that sounds
  • like fun
  • it turns out that he threw the ball deep
  • into the seats instead but regardless it
  • was great to race up there and one other
  • dude beat me out for it props to him you
  • know I always say the competition is
  • what makes it fun so I got nine
  • baseball's today one more for double
  • digits the Braves are just taking the
  • field as you saw in the video yesterday
  • their first group is money
  • Ronald Laconia Freddie Freeman Nick
  • Markakis so I'm gonna switch out of this
  • Reds gear put on my Braves hat and get
  • ready for more action
  • that was Eddie Perez who has been so
  • friendly to me for the last two days
  • that was my tenth of the day whoo the
  • Braves just finished their first group
  • of BP and there's something I want to
  • talk about quickly because I see a lot
  • of comments on YouTube and yes I try to
  • keep an eye on those from people who
  • always say how do you know which batters
  • are gonna hit in which group well the
  • answer is that you go to a lot of games
  • you pay close attention you remember and
  • the order in batting practice often
  • mirrors the order of the batting lineup
  • during the game now based on what I saw
  • yesterday I expected to see more of the
  • same today
  • but guess what Freddie Freeman was not
  • in that group Nick Markakis was not in
  • that group instead Ozzy alby's hit he
  • was in a later group yesterday and Brian
  • McCann was taking some cuts so in a way
  • you never really know those were still
  • good hitters but they didn't put on
  • nearly as good of a show is the first
  • group yesterday so I just got that one
  • toss-up from Eddie Perez then he ground
  • will double at the wall and that's it so
  • I'm not gonna complain about getting two
  • balls in one group but it still could
  • have been a lot better so 11 so far
  • today
  • all right so that's it four Braves
  • beeping I got 12 baseball's I think
  • combined everybody here probably got a
  • hundred today and at 5:40 p.m. which is
  • just a couple minutes from now they
  • sound the whistle and everybody races up
  • this ramp goes over to left field and
  • the scavenger hunt is on for baseball's
  • in the seats now about 10 minutes ago I
  • did see a few ushers go down into the
  • seats and they were picking up some
  • balls but then they left and the Braves
  • were still hitting for 10 minutes so
  • there might be a few baseball's in there
  • guys are you ready for this
  • oh yes yes it's on
  • three more Easter eggs for me today in
  • left-field I absolutely love it and it
  • would have probably been even more if
  • not for those pesky Usher's but still
  • really glad to have gotten those I hand
  • up to the second deck briefly to look
  • some more up there because yasiel Puig
  • was blasting baseball's about 450 feet
  • from home plate you never know where
  • baseball's might be lurking but there
  • was nothing waiting for me up there
  • so 15 baseball's total today plus the 17
  • from yesterday
  • 32 balls in two days I love this place
  • so much and listen of course I always
  • want to know who hits the balls who
  • throws the balls I don't always know all
  • those ground rule double Xin home runs
  • today I have no idea but I do know that
  • my 12th ball was thrown by Braves
  • pitcher Bryce Wilson and check out this
  • one during Reds BP I got one of those
  • hundred and fiftieth anniversary
  • commemorative balls the Reds of course
  • were the red stockings they became a
  • franchise in 1869 and the Reds are using
  • these baseball's during games for the
  • entire season and every now and then
  • they might get lucky and find one during
  • BP I am in such a good mood right now
  • and you know what I want to do as a
  • result I want to talk to you guys

  • that often I've showed it in a few
  • videos and here we go with the Reds this
  • is what one of their Suites looks like
  • perched high along the left-field foul
  • line so the interior right here you can
  • see the hot plates where there'd be
  • unlimited food they would just keep
  • bringing it you see there's outdoor
  • seating seating in a bar there's tables
  • cushy benches as well you got the whole
  • kitchen area just beautiful artwork on
  • the wall the big TV where you can watch
  • the game up there as well as of course
  • with your own eyeballs looking at the
  • field so just really nice facility is
  • tight setup and you know as much as I
  • love personally being in Suites all the
  • free food I just want to be in the
  • outfield trying to catch homeruns so
  • they just wrapped up the national anthem
  • I'm gonna head back downstairs if the
  • Braves are still warming up along the
  • foul line we'll catch them otherwise
  • straight to the out here
  • [Music]
  • [Applause]
  • [Music]
  • this game started with a bang Ozzy
  • alibies leading off for the Braves hit a
  • solo home run down the right-field line
  • so out here in left field I have no play
  • on that but it's always nice to see the
  • base box and then the Reds answered with
  • a run in the bottom of the frame
  • so right now top of the second inning
  • it's one to one and guys check this out
  • this is my ticket from today's game I
  • barely got Charlie Culberson to sign it
  • right before the game started yesterday
  • of course I got the hakuna autograph on
  • a baseball to give away as an Instagram
  • prize so I won't be keeping that one
  • normally I like to get my autographs on
  • tickets and if you missed it I did for
  • long videos over the offseason showing
  • my ticket stub collection more than a
  • thousand autographs so search for that
  • on YouTube and right now I still have an
  • entire empty row in that direction it's
  • a little bit crowded on that side so hey

  • heading to the bottom of the seventh
  • inning
  • Ozzie alby's the first batter of the
  • game that is still the only home run
  • tonight now it rained earlier it chased
  • some people away very slow quiet night
  • just look at this look at this
  • I have so much space to work with here
  • if anybody would hit a home run I
  • guarantee you I would catch it so let's
  • see it
  • [Applause]
  • [Music]
  • when I enter in a game time I was so
  • nervous you know what I figured if I got
  • shut out let's go let's go it's a final
  • the Braves won this game by the score of
  • three to one and I hate to say it but
  • this game was kind of unremarkable
  • neither starting pitcher went past the
  • sixth inning and yet there were only two
  • extra-base hits none for the Reds that
  • leadoff home run by alby's was the only
  • long ball of the night so even though I
  • had all kinds of space out here in left
  • field luck just was not on my side no
  • opportunities but early on during
  • batting practice there were tons of
  • opportunities I got 12 baseball's during
  • bp3 Easter eggs after BP and okay a
  • couple things about that I mentioned
  • that I was going to show you that secret
  • space where the baseball was hiding
  • early on well here's a little
  • reenactment of what it looked like when
  • I grabbed it there's a little gutter
  • underneath the chairs in the front row

Description

Easiest stadium to catch a baseball in the stands -- Great American Ball Park, home of the Cincinnati Reds. Get there early for batting practice and then go nuts. So many opportunities. So much fun.

After getting 15 balls during BP, I headed up to the club level and checked out an empty suite. Then I went back downstairs, got an autograph right before the game, and hurried off to the outfield to try to catch a home run. Never a dull moment!

As I mentioned at the end of this video, every baseball that I catch this season is raising money for a children's baseball/softball charity. Here's my fundraiser:
