“Zack Hample . . . Ryan Howard here.”
Remember when State Farm sent me to the 2011 Home Run Derby in Phoenix? Well, they hooked me up again this year from afar. Basically, they offered me the chance to ask Ryan Howard some questions in Kansas City, and when I said that I wasn’t gonna be able to make it, they arranged for someone to ask Howard for me.

Many thanks to State Farm and Ryan Howard (and to my buddy Jake Ricker at Weber Shandwick, who continues to make cool things happen for me). Also, as Mr. Howard said, go to statefarm.com/gotobat to help raise money for charity and (if you’re very very lucky) win some World Series tickets.
