The regulation sized baseball field was the culmination of years of effort by the Muskego Warriors youth baseball program, and Tuesday's opening day was truly one for celebration
As speeches were made and the first pitches thrown in the opening day ceremonies for the first game at Park Arthur in Muskego, it may not have been apparent how many pieces had to come together to build the diamond. "If it was not for the Muskego Warriors Youth Baseball organization getting the ball rolling this park would still be for sledding only," said Jim Prusinski, a board member for the organization. Prusinski said the process started five to six years ago when he approached Parks Director Craig Anderson asking if there were any plans for another regulation-sized diamond. Horn Field is the only other such diamond in the city featuring 90-foot base paths and a deep enough outfield. At that time, Prusinski's son was playing tee ball …

Despite wind, rain and cold temps, the start of the summer season was part of the spirit as the Muskego Athletic Association holds its kickoff celebration
Paul Peardon was probably as excited as any of the hundreds of kids in attendance at the Muskego Athletic Association kickoff celebration Saturday at Bluhm Park. The MAA event chairman was also the emcee for the events offered to families who came out to celebrate the start of youth baseball for summer. This was the first such event that the organization has held, and high winds, cold temperatures and occasional rain was not going to dampen the spirit.
