He was drafted out of Lewis & Clark by the Baltimore Orioles in 1958 at the age of 20, played in the minors for five years before being called up to the majors, then was named Rookie of the Year by The Sporting News in 1963. In 1971, he began the Pete Ward Baseball Cinic, which brought active and former Major League players to Oregon as guest speakers. He was inducted into the Oregon Sports Hall of Fame in 1985.
