George Henry Redmon, 94, firefighter, baseball player

George Henry Redmon, a retired Baltimore firefighter and an avid baseball player, died Monday at his granddaughter's home in Severna Park of a heart attack. The Rehoboth Beach resident was 94.

Mr. Redmon, who had been battling lung cancer for five months, was born and raised in Hampden, where he lived most of his life. He attended Polytechnic Institute before being apprenticed to his father as a carpenter.

But his real love was playing baseball. He joined the Blue Ridge League, a minor division league for the Brooklyn Dodgers, for several years until he broke his ankle.

In 1930, at age 27, he joined the city Fire Department because he heard it was looking for a good ballplayer for its league, his daughter, Jane Rice of Annapolis, said.

Soon after, he married Helen Louise Standiford of Baltimore. She died in 1964.

In 1966, he married Lucy Jarred of Harrington, Del. Two years later, he retired from the Fire Department with the rank of battalion chief. He moved to Rehoboth Beach, Del., where he lived until he moved to his granddaughter's home this year.

A lifetime member of the Boumi Temple in Baltimore, Mr. Redmon loved to play bridge and socialize with friends.

Several days before his death, he said he felt as if he had been 21 years old for most of his life.

"You're only as old as you feel," he told his granddaughter, Leslie Thrasher.

Services were held Wednesday.

In addition to his wife, daughter and granddaughter, he is survived by a son, John Redmon of Tilghman Island; two other grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren.
