Ronald Goldfaden was a standout first baseman for Newark State College from 1970 through 1972 and at the time became just the third Squire ever to earn New Jersey State Athletic Conference first-team honors in 1972.
In his first two seasons, Goldfaden hit safely in 33-of-35 games played and helped lead the team to its first winning record in over a decade. A NJSAC honorable mention all-star in 1970 and 1971, Goldfaden was also a New Jersey Baseball Writers' Association College Division All-Star as a junior after leading the team in both homeruns (5) and runs batted in (20), while also compiling a 16-game hitting streak during the season. The year before, he set then-Squire records with five homers, six doubles and 22 RBI to lead the team.
Goldfaden earned his bachelor's degree in Psychology from Kean in 1972. A partner of Blume Goldfaden Berkowitz Donnelly Fried & Forte, Goldfaden resides in Livingston, N.J.
