Catching up with Mike Trout at Globe Life Park

  • Published on Apr 22, 2019
  • My flight from NYC was delayed three hours, so I barely arrived early enough to see Mike Trout before the game. Last year he promised to give me one of his bats. Would today be the day??
    In addition to trying for that, I was stressed about my consecutive games streak because I missed batting practice! I had gotten at least one baseball at EVERY game I'd been to for more than 25 years, so somehow I had to find a way to get one during the game. I bought seats in two different sections to increase my chances and ran around like a madman all night.
    This video was filmed by Ian Perlman (@ianperlman) on April 15, 2019 -- Jackie Robinson Day! Thanks for watching.

    Alex Rodriguez said today during the Astros Indians game that the package you got from the Yankees to get that 3,000th homerun was worth over $200,000. Oh my gosh, way to make money lmao

      @The Disco Stu he got more than the autographed bat that was undisclosed. More specifically, they donated 150k to his charity, he got a signed jersey and bat, plus a "package" that was not revealed worth an additional sum of money

    • The Disco Stu
      The Disco Stu 3 months ago +3

      It didn't go to Zack, most of that money went to Zack's favorite charity. I doubt that an ARod autographed bat would fetch 200K

    Hey zack I have a question, hope you can answer! I live near Marlins Park but I’ve never been to the BP I just go see the game, I’ve caught like 3 balls so that’s cool, but I have been thinking of going to BP on my next game so I was wondering, to go to the outfield to catch home run balls in BP do I need a ticket to go in that section?
