In 1965, she joined the baseball team's public relations department and retired in the late 1970s from its farm teams department.

"She was an avid baseball fan," said her nephew, Bernard C. Rice of Rosedale, who said his aunt liked "nothing more than to visit old ballparks such as Wrigley Field, Comiskey Park, Municipal Park in Cleveland and County Stadium in Milwaukee. But her absolute favorite was Fenway Park in Boston."

Mr. Rice said she was friends with former players Frank Robinson, Jim Palmer, John "Boog" Powell and Brooks Robinson.

Miss Rice was born and raised in the 2700 block of Maryland Ave. and was a 1943 graduate of Notre Dame Preparatory School.

She worked at WBAL-TV from the late 1940s to the mid-1950s, when she joined the alumni office at Loyola College of Maryland.

She was a communicant of SS. Philip and James Roman Catholic Church, 2801 N. Charles St., where a Mass of Christian burial will be offered at 10 a.m. today.

Other survivors include two nieces, Terry R. Aman of Cockeysville and Jeannie Pullarn of Perry Hall; two great-nephews; and five great-nieces.
