Record Breaking Catch From 1,000 Feet . . . but He Failed to Notify Guinness, So It Doesn't Count

by Murphy

You would think if you're going to try for a record, you'd let the folks who have to verify it know about it. A guy named Zach Hample tried to break a world record on Saturday by catching a baseball dropped from a helicopter 1,000 feet up. He actually ACCOMPLISHED it too, and there's video of it online. The problem is, he didn't make sure someone from Guinness was on hand . . . so it doesn't count.
