Baseball has been a big part of Richard Nussbaum's life, for as long as he can remember.
"My entire early life I just wanted to be a baseball player," Nussbaum, a local attorney told WSBT. "I really wasn't thinking about anything else."
"Becoming a lawyer was plan-B. Here I am, after a lot of years, now realizing part of my dream to be in professional baseball. I'm very blessed to be able to do it."
On January 1st, Nussbaum took over as the president of the Midwest League, replacing George H. Spelius, who served as President of the League since 1987. The Midwest League is made up of 16 professional minor league baseball teams, including the South Bend Cubs.
