Ben Fadden is the Head Content Creator at Gaslamp Ball, writing weekly articles and hosting a podcast/YouTube show called "Talking Friars". He is the ultimate diehard Padres fan who lives 20 minutes from Petco Park and has season tickets for the team with his family. Ben was born and raised in San Diego county and the Padres are a huge part of his life. His first favorite player was Khalil Greene and his current favorite player is infielder Jake Cronenworth. Ben's favorite Padres memory is Jake Cronenworth's go-ahead single against the Dodgers in Game 4 of the 2022 National League Division Series.
Ben has had the chance to talk with numerous former Padres players on his show, including Tyson Ross, Adam Rosales, Heath Bell, Kurt Bevacqua, Greg Garcia and Clayton Richard.
