What is Friars on the Farm?
Born and raised in San Diego I was blessed to live in a city with perfect weather but cursed with bad major sports teams. A self professed Baseball junkie, I grew up watching Dave Winfield, Randy Jones, Tony Gwynn. I’ve been a tortured Padre fan my whole life, and married a converted tortured Mets fan and together we rise and fall with every Padre win and loss. Mostly falling!
Roy Thomasson was born and raised in San Diego and is a lifelong Padres fan. While he only played baseball through Little League, he lives vicariously through the players working their way up through the Padres’ minor league system. He enjoys learning about the stories behind the players as well as the various factors affecting today’s game. In his free time, Roy enjoys golf and cycling when he’s not watching or reading about baseball.
