Ronald Peter Perranoski (born April 1, 1936 in Paterson, New Jersey) is a former left-handed Major League Baseball relief pitcher, having played from 1961 through 1973. In approximately 1964 he moved to Amestoy Avenue, Van Nuys, California (in the San Fernando Valley) across the street from Stagg Street Elementary School.

In 1963, Perranoski won 16 of 19 relief decisions for the Los Angeles Dodgers, who would go on to win the 1963 World Series in four consecutive games over the New York Yankees. He appeared in one World Series game that season, and earned a save.

Perranoski grew up in Fair Lawn, New Jersey, where he attended Fair Lawn High School.[1]

Perranoski attended Michigan State University, where he was a teammate and friend of Dick Radatz, who also would become a standout reliever in the 1960s. After his playing career ended, Perranoski was the Dodgers' minor league pitching coordinator (1973-80), then the MLB pitching coach for Los Angeles for 14 seasons (1981-94). He joined the San Francisco Giants as minor league pitching coordinator in 1995, was promoted to bench coach in 1997 and then to pitching coach in 1998-99. He has been a special assistant to general manager Brian Sabean since 2000.

"In 1954, as a 17-year-old Fair Lawn High School student, Potts established the Fair Lawn Athletic Club baseball team to give himself and his friends a chance to play summer baseball. The team soon became the Paterson and later the Clifton Phillies, which was the one of the most successful teams of its kind in the country until it folded in 1999. Among the first players on the Phillies was Potts' high school teammate, Ron Perranoski, who later starred as a relief pitcher on several Los Angeles Dodgers world championship teams."
