Dick Robinson

“The thing I admired most about Dick was his zeal and passion for all aspects of life. His energy and joy were contagious. I’m thrilled to help with this project because I know the passions Dick had for Midway and for baseball. As a Major League Baseball player, I can’t think of a better way to honor Dick than this field.”

-Chris Burke

The Campaign for the Dick Robinson Memorial Field at Midway University

As part of the fundraising for the Campaign of Opportunities Baseball Stadium, a special committee of Dick Robinson’s friends and family are raising funds in his honor to memorialize him on the playing field of the Midway Eagles Baseball Stadium.

If you are interested in supporting this part of the campaign our Advancement Office Staff would welcome the opportunity to meet with you and discuss the project. Contact Tim Culver, Vice President of Advancement, at tculver@midway.edu or 859.846.5300.
