An American baseball fan has caught more than 7,537 baseballs till date in the stands at Major League games.

Zach Hample, who aims at collecting 10,000 baseballs, said that he wasn't good enough to be a Major League Baseball player, the Mirror reported.

The 36-year-old fan also claimed that he was still probably better at judging and catching fly balls than 99.9 per cent of the public.

He further added that when he is at a game and the ball goes up in the air, without even looking at it he starts running and climbing over rows and planning his path and dodging vendors and people and then look up to catch the ball.

Hample, who is three quarters of the way to his target, keeps his collection in his apartment in Manhattan and has spent around 100,000 dollars and lot of hours honing his skills.
