A proud San Francisco native, Alice Catherine "Cathy" (Tognotti) Collins was born in San Francisco, CA on September 9th, 1927 to the late Frank Tognotti and Alice Conklin. Growing up in the Ingleside District, Alice's love of sports started at an early age, playing ball as a youth, coaching the "Baby Seals" baseball team (which was a team made up of sons of major league Seals players).

Later, she played for the Fort Wayne Daisies of the All American Girls Professional Baseball League beginning with the 1946 season leading to her subsequent induction into the Women's Baseball Hall of Fame.

In 1951, Alice found herself in Japan as a member of WACS, for a two year term. Once stateside, Alice started a long career with the City of San Francisco Recreation and Park Department and coached bowlers on the San Francisco Special Olympic Teams.
