ORADELL, N.J. — After a weeks of fundraising and an eight-hour closure over the weekend, Muehleck Little League Field is now complete with a brand new turf for Oradell’s young athletes to enjoy in the spring.
“It was a lot of hard work and it was nice that we had a number of volunteers,” said Jay Haviland, a member of the Oradell Little League fundraising committee.
Scott Bassetti, the White Beaches Country Club groundskeeper and Oradell Little League volunteer, was the brains behind this operation, Haviland said.
The project was covered by funds raised by now-fourth-grade mothers, including Chairman Jodi Bustillo.
Hoffman Field, meanwhile, is in the final stretch of improvements and will reopen by the end of the month ( SEE: Two Oradell Fields See 'Needed' Improvements ).
