Dodgers' Kershaw denies collector Zack Hample's request on Father's DaytheScore
Clayton Kershaw doesn't have time for ballhawks, especially when it comes to 39-year-old Zack Hample who has collected a bajillion (approximation) baseballs over his lifetime attending games.
On Sunday, Hample approached Kershaw for one of the commemorative Father's Day balls.
Swing and a miss.
The Dodgers ace was aware of Hample and his growing collection, it seems. Hample then tried a different tactic, though it yielded the same result.
...it was a blue Father's Day ball. I said, "It would mean so much to me," and Kershaw was like, "No, it wouldn't." <sigh> Still love him.— Zack Hample (@zack_hample) June 18, 2017
No hard feelings, though it doesn't appear like he went home empty-handed:
