Memorial service is set Thursday for Hendricks

December 24, 2005|By SUN STAFF

A memorial service honoring former Orioles coach and catcher Elrod Hendricks will be held Thursday at 11 a.m. at The Cathedral of Mary Our Queen on North Charles Street.

Hendricks died Wednesday night of a heart attack suffered at the BWI Airport Marriott in Linthicum a day before his 65th birthday.

He wore an Orioles uniform longer than anybody else and was the team's bullpen coach for 28 years. Since 1968, when Hendricks joined the organization as a catcher, he had been with the club for all but 1 1/2 of 38 seasons.

The Hendricks family is requesting that in lieu of flowers, contributions be made in Elrod's name to: Boston University School of Medicine/Amyloid Research Fund 715 Albany St., Suite K502, Boston, MA 02118-2526.
