Ben has celiac disease. At every ballpark he visits, he recruits a designated eater to consume the stadium cuisine his gluten-free diet prohbits. Take a look back through his travels in the Minors and learn about the delicious, the spicy, the sweet and the bizarre ballpark snacks and the brave fans who volunteered to consume them on Ben's behalf.
Each week, Ben joins Show Before the Show hosts Sam Dykstra and Tyler Maun for his "Ben's Banter" segment. He talks about his recent work -- covering everything from road trips to rebrandings -- and occasionally interviews guests of his own. No matter the topic, the banter is always informative and lively.
