(Richmond, IN)--Services are still pending for a Richmond man who was largely credited with helping to bring summer baseball to McBride Stadium.  Duke Ward died last Friday after having suffered a heart attack early last week.  Ward was instrumental in bringing the Richmond Roosters to McBride in the 1990’s.  He also was part of a trio that brought the River Rats to McBride after the Roosters folded.  Ward was also the owner of Side One Music in Richmond.
