Harry S. White, a retired Baltimore fire lieutenant and a member of the Maryland Baseball Oldtimers Association Hall of Fame, died Saturday at Baltimore County General Hospital of respiratory failure.
Services will be at 10 a.m. tomorrow at the St. Joseph Monastery Parish, 251 S. Morley Street, Baltimore.
Mr. White, who was 84, lived in Catonsville.
Born in Baltimore, Mr. White grew up playing sandlot baseball. A hard-hitting first baseman, he played minor league baseball in Hagerstown for two years after graduating from the Polytechnic Institute in 1927.
He became a firefighter in 1930, beginning a 34-year career in the city fire department. As a lieutenant, he received a back injury while fighting a fire. The injury forced him to retire in 1964.
