Zack Hample, a prominent baseball collector, drew plenty of scorn on social media for showing up at Sunday's historic showdown between the Miami Marlins and Atlanta Braves at Fort Bragg, where all 12,500 seats were reserved for Department of Defense employees and their families.

Hample, who claims to have collected more than 9,000 baseballs at 51 different MLB stadiums, said he got his ticket "through a friend whose entire unit got 'em," but a screencap showed the 38-year-old soliciting tickets from active DOD members on Tinder.

Not surprisingly, many found Hample's presence at the game unacceptable.
