The Muskego Warriors select youth baseball club has stepped up to the plate and has its eye on hitting a homer in the form of finding enough sponsors to create a full-size baseball diamond at Park Arthur.
At Monday's meeting of the Muskego Parks and Recreation Board, the Muskego Warriors presented its plans for offering banners at the future ball field to potential sponsors. The board gave the group its go-ahead.
The Warriors hope to provide 100 percent of the $70,000 to $75,000 it will take to create the field, complete with bleachers. Most of the cost will be for the fencing.
The sponsorship banners would likely go behind the dugouts and in left and right fields, said Craig Anderson, director of parks and recreation.
Work is slated to start on the diamond this fall and it should be ready for play next summer, he said.
Park Arthur is still largely undeveloped. Future plans call for three additional but small ball diamonds there. Those diamonds would be suitable for players up to about age 12, Anderson said.
