Ben Cafardo

Follow Ben Cafardo

I oversee communications strategy and efforts for ESPN’s NBA and MLB properties. I’m also proudly involved in pr efforts for the company’s corporate outreach initiatives. I’m originally from the Boston area, making me a passionate Red Sox, Celtics and Patriots fan. Before joining the worldwide leader, I worked for Major League Baseball, the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Disney and contributed to an 800-page New England Patriots encyclopedia. My father, Nick Cafardo, is the national baseball writer for the Boston Globe, so it could be said I’ve spent my entire life with the media. Most importantly, I’m a passionate consumer of all things ESPN!
