Ben Machin is a 19 year old baseball and hockey enthusiast who has a passion for Toronto Sports teams, especially the Blue Jays and Maple Leafs. He currently attends Laurentian University in Sudbury, Ontario studying Sports Administration. When the opportunity arose to become a staff writer for the Jays Journal he immediately applied. I applied not only for the experience, but because he wanted to expand his passion for sports in a way that differs from just tweeting and arguing with friends and family over sports news. Some of his other hobbies either than hockey and baseball are weight training, squash, basketball, as well as fantasy sports. He's hoping to be a part of the Fansided team for years to come and Go Blue Jays Go!
