Ronni's interest in the BioProject began with a meeting of the Lefty O'Doul Chapter when several members spoke about their participation in the project. One of the members made mention of a ballplayer that was born in Santa Cruz and that piqued her interest, having lived in Santa Cruz for the past 24 years. She's the author of Garlic Fries and Baseball: The Book, and writes a blog of the same name. It's about baseball odds and ends and not about a specific team, though she's quick to mention she's an avid SF Giants fan. She has been a member of SABR since 2010.
