Remembering Karen Busselman

By Justin Braun

On July 11, 2020, Karen Busselman, Prior Lake’s original “Baseball Mom”, passed away after a short battle with brain cancer.

The Prior Lake Jays and PLABA send their thoughts and love to the Busselman Family on her passing.

Karen was Prior Lake’s original ‘Baseball Mom’ supporting Hall of Fame Coach Darwin ‘Buff’ Busselman’s 42 seasons at the helm of the PLHS Lakers. She had a tremendous impact on the community of Prior Lake and touched countless lives of players and families in her support of Laker baseball.

Our hearts are with ‘Buff’, their Laker & Jays Baseball alumni sons Dave and Paul, and daughter Jes as well their families and many friends. Karen will be missed by many.

In honor of Karen, the Prior Lake Jays observed a moment of silence before the start of their game Friday evening.
