MEET THE LADY IN THE LOCKER ROOM!
From the day the Dodgers arrived in Los Angeles in 1958, Snyder became an intimate part of the ball club's record-setting and action-packed history. As one of the few women in Major League Baseball, she had the rare experience of traveling with the team to spring training each year and learned firsthand the mischief and humor that prevailed among ballplayers back then. And in another rarity for young women of that era, the rookie staffer authored a series of columns published in sports publications about the little known personal side of Dodger stars, front office brass and ball club operations.
After leaving the Dodgers in 1968, Snyder embarked on a new career in state government. She was with the California Attorney General's office in Sacramento for ten years and later was appointed the state's director of tourism by then-governor George Deukmejian. Now retired, the author lives in Carmel.
