Remembering Art Peterson

 

Former WMLL President and District 4 Little Lg Administrator, Art Peterson, passed away January 26, 2015, at the age of 91.  Art was instrumental in acquiring a lease for the land on which WMLL plays today.  He laid out the Major and Senior fields back in 1964 so construction could begin on WMLL’s new home.  Art served as WMLL President for a number of years and also served as District 4 Administrator for 15 years.  He was the driving force behind the West Kiwanis Clubs’s team sponsorship dating back to the 1960’s.

Rest in Peace, Art.  Your legacy lives on at West Madison Little League.
