Profile Biography

Edith “Little Red” Barney was a catcher who played in the AAGPBL during the 1948 season.

A native of Bridgeport, Connecticut, Edith attended Bassick High School, where she played basketball, soccer and softball.  She later participated in industrial league softball and basketball.

She entered the AAGPBL in 1948 with the Grand Rapids Chicks, managed by Johnny Rawlings.  The Chicks won the Eastern Division with a league-best record of 77-48, but were swept in the semi-final round by the Fort Wayne Daisies.  After her four-game career, Barney later worked for more than 36 years at Raybestos-Manhattan, Inc. in her native Bridgeport.

After retiring in 1985, she moved to North Port, FL and played golf and bowled and directed activites in her mobile home park.
