McGee Honored for Work as Umpire

The Steubenville Umpires Association remembered the life of the late Fred McGee, one of its longtime members, during a recent meeting. The organization presented members of McGee’s family with a plaque that recognized his work as an umpire and service to his country. McGee, who died Jan. 3 at the age of 89, was the recipient of the Silver Star and two Purple Hearts for his acts of heroism when his unit fell under heavy fire at Hill 528 Tang-Wan-Ni in June 1952 during the Korean War. Among those on hand for the ceremony were, from left, front, Riley McGee; Robin Bland; Cornell McGee; and James McGee; and back, Steve Seminara, a longtime member of the umpires association; and Gerald “Yonk” DiLoreto and Ross Gallabrese.
