PLATO, Minn. (FOX 9) - It was another beautiful week for FOX 9's Town Ball Tour as we made a stop in Plato for a matchup between the Gaylord Islander -- which almost didn't happen.
The game was able to go on Wednesday despite a tornado hitting the city of Plato just two nights before. Those storms damaged the Blue Jays' field, including ripping apart a fence.
But, after some quick work by crews, repairs were made and town ball went on.
Plato, about 50 miles southwest of Minneapolis, is home to about 329 people and 39 locally owned businesses. The city is named after the philosopher Plato.
The Blue Jays played their first game in 1882, beating Glencoe 25-14.
Next up on the 2022 FOX 9 Town Ball Tour is Watertown on June 8, then Isanti on June 15 followed by Union Hill on June 22. You can find the full Town Ball Tour schedule here.
