The kid-trampling ball-chasing man child Zack Hample is back at it again and this time he has the Coors Field ushers in his crosshairs.

Hample posted two vlogs on YouTube of him complaining and later spatting with Coors Field employees.

If you’re unfamiliar with Hample’s “work,” he is an avid collector of home run balls. His methods of studying spray charts, bumping into children, and grabbing tens of thousands of balls has bothered many, with the New York Post calling him, “baseball’s most hated fan.”

Here’s a clip going viral from Hample’s vlog.

The games Hample went to were against the Cardinals. He sat just beyond left field, where he can most easily run up-and-down the aisle, that’s what the ushers took issue with.

Coors Field ushers aren’t beyond criticism. They routinely make things harder and worse for fans. But they aren’t the issue here, Hample’s actions are.

This is certainly not the first time Hample has been at the center of the baseball world’s attention and it likely won’t be the last.

Hample is spending parts of Friday arguing with fans on Twitter, doubling down on his bad experience. It seems as though the ushers employed a strategy that follows what Dick Monfort once said, “if the product and experience are that bad, don’t come.”
