Rodriguez’s 3,000th hit, suffered several scratches to his neck Wednesday at Yankee Stadium fighting for a ball during batting practice before the Yankees’ matchup with the Orioles.Hample told NJ Media the man fighting him for the ball "was basically throwing punches and absolutely assaulting me like a maniac."  MORE: Rosanne's Star-Bungled Banner 25 years laterUnfortunately the answer to "Have you ever gotten into a fight for a ball?" is now yes. I was flat-out assaulted.— Zack Hample (@zack_hample) July 22, 2015I'm scraped up in various places. The @Yankees Stadium medical staff says these are fingernail scratches:— Zack Hample (@zack_hample) July 22, 2015"For 10, 15, 20 seconds, he was trying to injure me," Hample said. The Yankees released a statement on the incident that read:An incident took place between Zack Hample and another fan during batting practice when an Orioles player attempted to toss a ball into the right-field stands. After a brief altercation, the two parties were separated. After carefully reviewing video recordings of the incident — in which no punches were thrown and there was not a clear determination of who was the aggressor — Yankees operations personnel reassigned the other fan, along with his father, to a different seat location within the stadium. Reports were also taken by security officials.After receiving treatment for his injuries, Hample returned to his season-ticket seat in right field where he caught Ryan Flaherty’s third-inning home run.Well, I might've had some pre-game "issues," but I caught Ryan Flaherty's 3rd-inning homer. Take THAT, universe!!— Zack Hample (@zack_hample) July 23, 2015
