Tony Ferraro, the Chairman of the National Italian American Sports Hall of Fame Board of Directors has announced today the unanimous selection of Ron Onesti as newly elected President of the organization. “The board of directors selected Ron Onesti to lead and to cultivate the NIASHF as he has the credentials, the passion and the history with the organization to take us to the next level.
