Anthony Owen “Tony” Wilmot of Sherman, a former baseball coach and owner of the Bar and Grille restaurant on Route 7, died Tuesday, Feb. 18, at Danbury Hospital. He was 50 years old and the husband of Kristina Traynor Wilmot.
Mr. Wilmot grew up in Ridgefield and graduated in 1982 from Ridgefield High School, where he was a standout baseball player. He went on to play at Texas Christian University, graduating in 1986.
Mr. Wilmot coached the RHS baseball team for five seasons, resigning after the 2012 season. He had a 70-42 record as head coach, and his teams made state tournament all five seasons and FCIAC tournament four seasons.
For some years he worked with his sister, Jessica Wilmot, at the Ancient Mariner restaurant. In 2009, he opened the Bar and Grille on 7, which one reviewer called “a kind of nicely polished Ridgefield take on a sports bar.”
A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Thursday, Feb. 27, at 10:15 a.m. in St. Mary Church.
Interment will take place in St. Mary Cemetery at the direction of the family.
Friends will be received in the Kane Funeral Home, 25 Catoonah St., Wednesday, Feb. 26, from 5 to 8 p.m.
Dear RHS Baseball Fans, Alumni and Alumni Families,
We hope you and your families are having a wonderful holiday season and we wish you a Happy New Year. Our returning players are hard at work training twice a week as well as lifting weights. We are very excited and looking forward to winning the FCIAC Central Division for the fourth year in a row as well as making a run at the FCIAC and State Championships.
As a booster club we are tasked with supporting our teams and coaches. This fall we have purchased a net for the batting cage at the East Ridge MS field for the JV team’s use. The batting cage was missing the net for a number of years. We also had an expense to repair our sound system. These expenses have depleted our capital funds.
This off season we are looking at two additional initiatives that will support our program. We need funds to repair our Varsity Batting Cage. The coaches have also requested a small storage shed at the Varsity field to hold equipment and supplies that need to be moved back and forth from the HS because there is no secure place to store them at the field.
We are hoping that you could help us support these projects. Any donation would be most appreciated. We are in need of these funds by January/February time frame so we can have the shed in place and the batting cage repaired by March. Please make checks payable to: RHS Home Run Booster Club
