Ben Ranieri,Contributor

A former Mariners ultimate fan from Idaho at the age of 10, my passion for the Mariners started at an early age. I played college baseball and spent a lot of time at Driveline Baseball so I have a good feel between new and old school that I would love to share with Mariner fans! GOMS!

I've been a Mariners fan since I was old enough to ride Amtrak up from Portland to catch a game at Safeco. Other passions of mine include tennis, golf, camping, and watching the Portland Timbers.

About FanSided

The idea of FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn the creation of FanSided in 2009, a network of over 300+ fan-powered unique sports, entertainment and lifestyle sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage.

From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.
